MEET ONE OF OUR LANDOWNERS: DYANNA TAYLOR
Friday, May 22nd on CCA’s Living Room Series
Yes, she’s a three-time Emmy winning cinematographer and documentarian, but Dyanna Taylor is also a conservationist and part of a group of people who have protected a 100-acre stretch of the Pecos River with SFCT. It started when Dyanna and a few others purchased a 17-acre parcel to protect the swimming hole where locals liked to swim. Later they purchased and protected another 16-acre parcel adjoining the swimming hole, and donated that conservation easement to SFCT. Then the group formed a nonprofit called Pecos River Open Spaces, Inc. (PROS) to own and manage the properties. Later, another landowner joined in by donating a conservation easement with SFCT on 60 acres of her land along the Pecos River, which she later donated to PROS. Now the town of Pecos and surrounding villages have a protected piece of the Pecos River for them to swim in, free of development!
You can meet one of our local conservation heroes, Dyanna Taylor, this Friday, May 22, online at 7 pm via Zoom as she discusses her film, Vanished, as part of CCA’s Living Room Series. Watch the film tonight, and join the discussion Friday night!
