Start the Latino Conservation Week with ‘Water is Life; Agua es Vida’ that will highlight the importance of protecting our oceans, rivers, and creeks. This program will help children connect to nature and encourage them to become defenders of plants, wildlife, and our rivers and creeks that all life depends on.
Rosie Torres, an indigenous dancer and choreographer will perform a bilingual reading of the book We Are Water Protectors, written by award-winning Ojibwe author Carole Lindstrom. Ms. Torres will begin the program by leading children and their families through a dynamic Land Acknowledgement filled with movement, song, and a call to the four directions. The reading will be followed by a water ritual at the banks of the river and a nature walk led by the Urban Bird Project (UBP).
Families will then have an opportunity to go on a nature walk and use binoculars to observe the incredible biodiversity that the River supports. The guides will share water and bird stories rooted in Indigenous wisdom.
