Artists, New Mexico Bioneers to Celebrate the Valle Vidal

New Mexico is a state famous for beautiful landscapes and vast, unspoiled wilderness. Unfortunately, these natural areas are threatened more and more by people who want to tap small of amounts of oil and gas from these regions. Thankfully, organizations such as the Coalition for the Valle Vidal are working hard to protect these special areas of our country as a heritage for future generations.

There is an event coming up in Taos, New Mexico that celebrates not only the Valle Vidal, but also art. This event coincides with the annual Bioneers conference as well. The Bioneers are a group of scientists and citizens interested in sustainable technology that is based on nature.

“In concert with the second annual New Mexico Bioneers Conference in Taos, the Taos Country Club’s Gallery on the Green and the Coalition for the Valle Vidal will host “Abundant Life,” an art exhibit to celebrate the Valle Vidal. The gallery will display selected artworks for sale at a gala reception on Oct. 20, the first evening of the Bioneers weekend in Taos.”

Also, here’s a small bit of info from the Coalition for the Valle Vidal website about what makes this area so special:

The Valle Vidal is a lush mountain basin located in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, in northern New Mexico. Donated to the American People in 1982, the Valle Vidal is managed by the Carson National Forest primarily for its wildlife, as well as its outstanding scenic and recreational opportunities.

The Valle Vidal is a veritable Rocky Mountain paradise, with abundant populations of Rocky Mountain wildlife, including mule deer, black bear, mountain lion, bald eagles, and native Rio Grande cutthroat trout. In addition, the vast alpine meadows of the Valle Vidal provide critical habitat for the largest herd of elk in New Mexico.
