Thank you to the many artists and fans that engaged in the Day of Service & Community Connection in Belize! We had such a great time visiting the protected space, comprised of 7 villages that voluntarily work to protect the wildlife. We enjoyed a nature tour learning about the local flora, fauna and the history of the village people who have lived harmoniously with the howler monkeys (called baboons by the locals). We worked hard to improve the community’s welcome center and primary school by landscaping the Museum welcome center, painting buildings, laying piping for new plumbing, mixing and pouring concrete for a new pathway to make the facility more accessible and leveling surfaces.
After our work we enjoyed a delicious, locally sourced lunch. We celebrated with primary and high school students while enjoying music from Daniel Rodriguez, Turkuaz, and local musicians who run a nonprofit called Drums Not Guns. The memories of leaving a positive legacy won't be fading any time soon!
