Educating the Future

Community engagement is an important part of our efforts, which includes Environmental Education Workshops throughout the year. Recently, our on-the-ground team hosted one such workshop for the Casa de la Cultura de la Juventud CREA Cultura, as part of their Summer Program (Cursos de Verano).

The children learned about “The Ecosystem of the Colorado River”, where our staff and volunteers shared information about the biodiversity that once existed in the Delta region — and what is returning with our restoration efforts. And — don’t they look as if learning this is fun?!!

Gratitude to all who helped bring together this educational program for these Mexican youth — and for all of our supporters who make this possible. These youth  are the future of the Delta.
