In celebration of Latino Conservation Week, Healing Waters Family Center will hold a screening of the film Soy Rojo and discuss the importance of the Colorado River and it tributaries, and the need for conservation.
The Colorado River is the lifeblood of the southwest — its water sustains over 35 million people, including one-third of the nation’s Latinos, and endangered fish and wildlife in seven states. The Colorado River is an integral part of our heritage and way of life. It supports wildlife, tourism and our agricultural industry.
However, A century of overusing the river has put the river at a critical crossroads. Demand on the river’s water now exceeds its supply, leaving the river so over-tapped that it dries up to a trickle before reaching the sea.
As populations grow, we need to be even more careful in conserving water to help preserve our environment, protect against pollution and keep our ecosystems intact.
This event is open to the public.
