Notes written at RWU from Architecture Magazine 1984 v 73 by Crosbie:

Rio Grande Nature Center – Architectural movement across the landscape, into the water, enhances educational function. Sited in the wetlands preserve of Albuquerque, NM; it celebrated the history of water management. Arrive through a tunnel of trees, procession snakes around to the hidden bunker of earth berms, concrete, and vegetation. The Metal corrugated entry culvert tunnel burrowing through a berm, uses appropriate engineering language. The central station overlooks exhibits and landscape. Down a spiral ramp is a water pump exhibit with a reverse periscope for underwater viewing. Circular center space with 22 water columns, skylights, kid friendly vistas, sculpted dam.
