Viva Chihuahua! Sustainability in a Desert Landscape
4:00 p.m., MST June 19,
Broadcast from the Art and Ecology Laboratory, La Union
The Chihuahuan Desert straddles the border to cover more than 200,000 square miles of terrain across 8 states and is considered to be the most biologically diverse desert in the world as measured by the variety of species and endemic plants. Its relevance and impact to the culture and traditions of its human inhabitants is intertwined with their survival in this distinct landscape. Our program guests include sustainability activist, Kevin Bixby of the Southwest Environmental Center; landscape architect, David Christiani; historian, Anthony Mora, Ph.D. and artists Antonio Castro and Romy Hawkins.
