Educational Fair to Celebrate Wetlands

Reading Time: 2 minutes

On Friday February 28, 2020, we hosted the Wetlands Educational Fair at the Chapala wetland (San Quintin) with the attendance of more than 120 middle and high school students to celebrate World Wetlands Day.

The activities that were carried out that day were:

✅ Photographic safari guided by the Youth Club of Nature Photographers Huellas Volcánicas.

✅ Explanation of the 7 principles of Leave No Trace promoted by NOLS and Terra Peninsular.

✅ Talk about the archeological, historical and cultural value of San Quintín with the archeologist Enah Fonseca of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

This fair is part of the community and climate change projects promoted by the Climate Science Alliance.

In August 2019, the Youth Club of Nature Photographers Huellas Volcánica participated as a guest at the Climate Change Meeting organized by the Idyllwild Academy in California, where they presented a photographic exhibition and developed a project to combat climate change in their community, and they received a scholarship to continue with the project.

As a result of the project, the club decided to celebrate World Wetlands Day with an exhibition of photographs at the Government Center in San Quintin on January 30, and also with this educational fair aimed at students.
