Art Workshop at Estuario’s Visitor Center

Last Thursday, March 31, 2022, Estuario Resident Artist Faviana Silva held an art workshop at the Visitor Center in Old San Juan as part of her project, Arte para todos (Art for All).  The workshop was attended by young people from the Rayitos del Saber Homeschooling group. These young artists will exhibit their work on Saturday, May 7, 2022, in the Jaime Benítez Park.

Weekly Water Quality Monitoring

These are the results for the evaluation conducted on Thursday, April 7, 2022.  We continue with a green flag for the Laguna del Condado Estuarine Reserve. We report a red flag area, therefore we recommend avoiding recreational use in that area and being on the lookout for precipitation events.
