Bring your voices and learn about the science of the acequia.
Guest scientist:  David F. Garcia, Ph.D., is from the northern New Mexican community of El Guache. An anthropologist and musical artist, he studies music, agriculture, and food ways in northern New Mexico as they relate to sustainability and the cultural survival of Indo-Hispano communities.
