AUDUBON’s WORLD WATER WEEK EVENTS
Due to the urgent need to contain the spread of the COVID-19, we are postponing our World Water Week events and Wild Arts Festival.
Times like these remind us of how deeply interconnected we are and of the need to take care of ourselves, one another and the elements of our natural world.
One thing we can do to restore our spirits and promote our well-being is to connect with nature… take a walk or a hike, wander through Parque Juarez to visit our pollinator garden or simply sit on your patio to listen to the birds. Author Robert Louv calls it getting our Vitamin N.
Wishing you good health and peace,
The Audubon team
FRIDAY, MARCH 20 – Walk on Water 8:30 am – 12:30 pm / free
Join April Gaydos, president of Audubon de Mexico for a mini-adventure along a section of the Rio Laja Trail that is usually under water!

We’ll stop for gorditas at a super reputable roadside stand before catching a municipal bus back to our starting point. Limited to 10 participants.
