14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Sustainable Travel
El Canto de la Terra

El canto de la terra means, "Song of the Earth." Students come to this place to learn about desert ecology and to experience it first hand. This building is part of a sustainable ranch that grows native plants for food. The building receives power through solar panels. Several programs assist the ranch each year with sustainable development while learning about it's unique history and culture. A sustainable project consists of people traveling from around the world to explore a single place to gain a better understanding of the environment and learn how to live a sustainable lifestyle. It is also about learning the "Song of the Earth."
