Training Workshop for Environmental Educators
Estuario and the Population Education Program invite all educators of middle and high school levels to the professional training workshop: Population and Environment: Activities to Connect Students with Human Geography Themes; on Friday, June 25, 2021 at 3PM through Zoom.
This workshop is for all teachers from the public and private systems who teach social studies, history, geography and/or environmental sciences, as well as homeschooling parents and educators who may wish to integrate population-related activities to their curriculum.

Estuario Resident Artists
This week, Estuario introduced two new Resident Artists through social media:
Oscar Meléndez Rivera has created his project: Community Graphic Portfolio, for the Caño Martín Peña’s Barrio Obrero community youth. The project involves silkscreen workshops and applications of the technique to highlight the fauna and flora inhabiting the ecosystems of el Caño. These will result in the development of educational signs regarding correct solid waste management practice for the protection of natural resources.
The initiative To the Rescue of Glass, by Michelle Malley Campo, filmmaker and member of the Machuchal community, will create workshops focused on the reutilization of glass bottles as a mathod for the reduction of solid waste.
Preparing for the Hurricane Season
The month of June marks the beginning for the Atlantic hurricane season. As part of hazard mitigation efforts, Estuario has started a season-wide informative campaign, centered in the promotion of Estuario’s Virtual Resilent Community Hub. The hub continues to be updated with essential information to the public regarding preparation and hazard mitigation management.
