Rio Grande del Norte Adventure Safety Project
In partnership with the Bureau of Land Management - Taos Field Office and the UNM Taos - Film and Digital Media Department, this project will create a series of informative safety videos relating to themes of Water, Land, & Wildlife Safety while weaving in aspects of Cultural, Historical, and Environmental preservation for the Río Grande del Norte National Monument.
The videos will also focus on Leave No Trace/ Tread Lightly guidelines as visitors adventure outdoors.
Once completed, the videos will be available to view in visitor centers within the monument, as well as several online outlets.
The short informational videos will focus on water, land, wildlife safety, and responsible recreation. There will also be a virtual tour to prepare visitors to recreate in different areas of the monument.
In each video, the important cultural, historical, and environmental knowledge will be shared in partnership with the Taos Pueblo. The videos will also highlight Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly principals to help prepare visitors for their adventures.
Welcoming many thousands of visitors each year, the Río Grande del Norte National Monument can be both sensitive and dangerous, especially when recreating in the river. The aim of this collaboration is to encourage safe practices, responsible recreation, and respect for the natural and cultural resources in the Monument.
