Latino Conservation Week 2018
“Sometimes the end vision will fall short, but how we make the most of our reality is what makes us resilient.” – anon.
Originally, the following films were to be screen on a continuous loop in the visitor’s center in celebration on Latino Conservation Week, but the project shifted into a Virtual Short Film Festival in the interest of time!
Check out the films below, and some of the highlights of the table activation for LCW2018 at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Latino Conservation Week (July 14-22) celebrates the role of Latino cultures in conservation and stewardship. Lake Mead’s Latino Heritage Intern, Aiyesha, created a Virtual Short Film Festival to share with the world.Each of the films that have been selected showcase the intrinsic beauty of the planet, cultural traditions and commitments to resource stewardship with the global preservation community.Aiyesha will be at the Lake Mead Visitor Center off U.S. Highway 93 in Boulder City from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., July 14, and 16-20.
