Indentifying and Protecting Wildlife Corridors

 

Rachel Carson: The Wonder of Nature, a Chautauqua performance by Ann Beyke will be sponsored by Pathways on November 12th, 2 PM at the Placitas Community Center, 41 Camino de las Heurtas, just north of the historic village of Placitas, NM.

Suggested donation of $10 goes entirely to Pathways wildlife programs!
Come join us for an afternoon of education, entertainment, and fun, and help the local non-profit Pathways at the same time!

Rachel Carson was a marine biologist when few women dared to even tread the water.  Her lifelong love of nature and science led to research on how uncontrolled chemical use in our cities, towns and farming communities devastated wildlife and food sources.  Silent Spring, her bestselling book on the topic, detailed this devastation and led to the eventual ban on the use of DDT in the United States.  Carson’s work made environmentalism an integral part of our lives.

This event is made possible by the NM Humanities Council, which is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Department of Cultural Affairs of the State of NM.
