On Saturday afternoon, after the Caja del Rio litter clean-up, students and alumni will host activities celebrating sustainability, environmentalism, and an appreciation of nature through collaborations with photography, sustainable crafting, and greenhouse clubs. Nate Downey (SF91) will offer an aquaponics garden station, and Melanie Kirby (SF97) will have a beekeeping and honey station. Educator Beth Thompson from the New Mexico Wildlife Center will have some reptile ambassador animals for students to meet, along with a wide variety of wildlife artifacts, including skulls and wings. The NMWC has a mission to connect people and wildlife through conservation education and rehabilitation because a world with wildlife is a better world. It means they care for wildlife and work to help people understand how we can collectively create a better future for all species, including humans. Additionally, there will be an education table by Tewa Women United, a multicultural and multiracial organization founded and led by Native women based in the ancestral Tewa homelands of Northern New Mexico. The name “Tewa Women United” comes from the words wi don gi mu which can be translated as "we are one" in mind, heart, and in the spirit of love for all.
