‘Ditch the Ditches’ campaign kicks off with free swim passes, new mascots



You can now pick up free swim passes for your kids to use at the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County pools.

It’s part of the Ditch the Ditches program and this year it’s getting a new look and mascots.

The program is also handing out more than 50,000 free swim passes with the goal of keeping kids out of drainage ditches that can turn deadly if a flash flood hits.

“It’s a good program,” said Michael Barth. “It’s been around since I was a kid.”
