Explore N.M. history with a ¡colores! double feature including "My Heart Belongs to Nature" and "Acequia."


Come explore New Mexico history with a ¡COLORES! double feature!  This is a free event. Author John Nichols: My Heart Belongs to Nature - John Nichols’ beautiful new book from UNM Press, My Heart Belongs to Nature, was created from a lifetime of observing, experiencing and loving nature. Acequia - For centuries, Native Americans of the arid Southwest used a system of ponds and gravity-fed ditches (acequias) to grow crops with the little water they had. When the Spanish arrived in 1598, they were quick to adopt this system, establishing a unique tradition of irrigation and agriculture.
