This accession consists of records that pertain to the planning, coordination and funding for Nuestros Bosques, Nuestros Herencia (Our Forests, Our Heritage)
a traveling educational exhibit about tropical rainforests in the Americas. The exhibit was cooperatively produced by teams from other Latin American countries, and it was
developed out of the Smithsonian Institution's 1988-1994 traveling exhibition Tropical Rainforests, A Disappearing Treasure to serve as a forum to promote environmental
awareness about rainforests to people in Latin America.
These files consist of correspondence between: the coordinating teams from participating Latin American countries, funding and grant applications to private foundations,
individuals involved in the development of various aspects of the project, and internal communications.
In addition, there are minutes and memoranda from various planning meetings, proposals for the different educational components of the traveling exhibition, feedback from
the different Latin American participants about the exhibition format, and documents concerning development of Public Service Announcements and accompanying video. Finally,
many of the documents are in Spanish with and without the English text.
