Join The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in New Mexico on July 28 from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. (MT) for a virtual event titled, Empowering Community-led Forest Stewardship.
Healthy forests and wood products are essential to sustaining our communities and traditional use practices in northern New Mexico, but access to forests has been inhibited by multiple barriers.
Join us to learn about these challenges and how TNC and partners are learning from traditional cultural knowledge to create opportunities for community-led forest restoration projects that get wood to those who need it.
This virtual event is moderated by Matt Piccarello, Forest and Watershed Health Manager, TNC in New Mexico. Featured speakers are:
- Mario Atencio, Vice-President, Torreon/Starlake Chapter of the Navajo Nation Government
- James Duran, Forest Supervisor, Carson National Forest, US Forest Service
- J.R. Logan, Member, Cerro Negro Forest Council and Owner, Del Medio Forestry, LLC
This event is a part of the ongoing Taos Lecture Series, generously supported by the Taos Ski Valley Foundation.
Note: This event is FREE, and registration is required.
