We have such special specimens thanks to numerous donations from folks around ABQ! Snake skins from friends, a custom piece by artist and curator Cody Harris of Pen & Chisel, and countless other and ethically sourced treasures. We are excited to find creative ways to show them off for the Conservation Carnivale!




Coming all the way from New Hampshire/Maine/Texas/Missouri/Philly  Anna Welch is a travelling artist and do-gooder. Fresh off an AmeriCorps season, she dedicated a week of her life to come to New Mexico and create our ecosystem sideshow banners for the Conservation Carnivale ! She couldn’t have done it without the extra set of steady hands belonging to Kelsey Erickson, our first volunteer carny.
