January 2019 — SPECIMEN MOUNTING & GREEN MACHINE DESIGNS
We have such special specimens thanks to numerous donations from folks around ABQ! Snake skins from the ABQBioPark, 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!
The Green Machine is slowly getting its inside guts designed….Tricky stuff! But we are excited to show you our progress soon. In the meantime, would you want to sit on this bench? And how would you build a Cottonwood Tree out of upcycled and found goodies?
November 2018 — ECOSYSTEM SIDESHOW BANNERS
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.
2014 — New Mexico and Arizona, USA
Created for U.S. Forest Service by MscottLovesLife, the song “Sustain” contains elements and language from the internal federal documents that describe of the Forest Service’s Sustainable Recreation program in New Mexico and Arizona, USA.
The video includes partners from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, City of Albuquerque Open Space, and Great Old Broads for Wilderness non profit. Performances were done by youth from Warehouse 508 community non profit and the Bernalillo County Mountain View Community Center. This can be used as an education tool to inspire kids and adults of all ages to explore, appreciate, and enjoy the outdoors. Partner up, Provide, Protect, and Perform!
