Animal handlers will be available to show children how to feed animals a snack and hold smaller animals. Join us for the fun!

2:00pm Decolonize your Diet with Luz Calvo and Catriona Esquibel

Authors Luz Calvo and Catriona R. Esquibel will read passages from their new book, Decolonize Your Diet: Mexican-American Plant-Recipes for Health and Healing.  Luz and Catriona spent years researching the health benefits of the ancestral foods of Latin America. In this presentation, they will discuss their findings and do a cooking demonstration of one of their original recipes, “Aguachile de Quinoa,” which is healthy, vegan, and mouthwateringly delicious!
