Info

Colonia Los Laureles, population approximately 80,000, is a shantytown settlement of mostly factory workers in the steep canyons along the US Border near Tijuana. A major source of pollution in the Tijuana River estuary below, community groups are partnering with US Agencies such as NOAA to clean up the canyon and prevent erosion. Maria del Rosario Urias is a leader of one such grassroots group that is planting trees along the cliffs.
