Rivers and Birds - Arroyo Seco, NM
We, at Rivers & Birds, are committed to honoring the Earth and each other by spending time together in Nature. When we do this, we embody greater awareness of the interconnection of all life and begin to heal ourselves and the planet.
Rivers & Birds’ main goals are to conserve our natural environment and to promote local cultural traditions that demonstrate balance with nature. We believe that, for a healthy, peaceful future we must all, children and adults alike, understand and strengthen our sense of self in relationship to the physical world around us.
In our educational programs we include our ancestors and cultural elders (both Native American and Hispanic) who have lived by an agricultural system that honored nature. Having a multigenerational, multicultural focus provides valuable role modeling for youth. Using positive learning adventures, we teach the connectedness of all systems: natural, living, and manmade.
