Matthew Bare
Omar Tello


(Bottom Left): Lupe Tello, Omar Tello's wife, teaches local students about the importance of insects and the food chain. She is in a newly built interpretive center, made possible by private donations of visitors to the reserve. The museum is filled with photos taken every year of the restoration, beginning in 1980. Visitors can see the progression of the forest colonization, beginning with grasshoppers and increasing to include the current diversity of spiders, amphibians, snakes, and small mammals.
