Water Grab Talk At Datil Library

By Anne Sullivan

Datil’s Baldwin Cabin Public Library and The Friends Of BCPL present a talk by Jack Loeffler titled ‘Thinking Like A Watershed’ on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. at the library, featuring Jack Loeffler.
Water and the proposed San Agustin Plains water grab are primary concerns of citizens of Catron and Socorro Counties. BCPL and the Water Coalition hope that those who were unable to attend will take advantage of this opportunity to hear the talk without having to drive at night.
A writer, aural historian and radio producer, Loeffler has produced a radio series on the Colorado River and one on the Rio Grande based on his personal experience as a field researcher and river rat. His books include ‘Adventures With Ed: A portrait of Abbey;’ ‘Healing the West: Voices of Culture and Habitat;’ and ‘Headed Upstream: Interviews With Iconoclasts.’ He received a New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and the Edgar Lee Hewett Award for Writing from the New Mexico Historical Society. In 2009 he was honored as a Santa Fe Living Treasure.
The library is located on Forest Road 100 just off Highway 60 three miles west of downtown Datil. Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
