Building bridges and creating corridors in Costa Rica, a two-part series

Heartbreaking statistics surround biodiversity in the United States and internationally. On Wednesday, February 24, Dominique Naccarato will describe her first-hand experience studying Costa Rica’s pioneering ideas, policies, and community collaboration that address habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation in Costa Rica and beyond. The talk will be coupled with stunning photography of wildlife seen on her trip through Costa Rica in early January 2016, and explore common themes with local projects such as the Salida Trail Ecological Restoration Project (STERP).

The 2nd talk in this series will present new bio-acoustics findings by Western State Colorado University colleague Nell Jordan. Nell will expound on her vast bio-acoustics and soundscape experience, coupled with her field work in Costa Rica. Stay tuned for date and details for the 2nd talk.

Dominique is GARNA Program Coordinator and recently attended a field course on biological corridors in Costa Rica as her last class for the Masters in Environmental Management program at Western State Colorado University in Gunnison.

The talk will be held on Wednesday, February 24 at the Salida United Methodist Church from 7:00 until 8:30 pm. We ask that you pre-register online but if there is space, tickets will be available at the door (cash or check only please). The cost of the program is $5 for GARNA members, $7 for non-members.
