Al que buen árbol se arrima, buena sombra le cobija.

Oaxaca's Flickrmeet is a spin-off of the 2008 Rural Tourism Fair. The event's most viewed YouTube video showed travelers walking around the town of Santa María del Tule in search of ahuehuetes. This video has been seen more than 2,000 times.

The Flickr group Árboles de Oaxaca was created in 2007 and as of March 2008 has 36 members and 103 photos. The group was created to document the historic and notable trees featured in the map created by Francisco Verastegui and other trees in the state of Oaxaca.


The Oaxaca Flickrmeet is promoted via the Forum on Latin American Forests (FOLAF) which publishes original features, highlights research and develops cross-border networking and information sharing. FOLAF has two key objectives:
1) Improve awareness of forestry issues by publishing original materials and by updating resource guides with links to recommended resources elsewhere on the Web.
2) Improve awareness of the synergies between forestry and tourism. Ecotourism is a 'non-timber product' that can be a complementary asset to forestry.


By participating in this event -- either in person or by watching the photos and videos online -- answer the following questions:

What trees are blooming in April?
What trees are originally from Australia?
What trees were planted by notable Mexican leaders?
Where can you buy fair trade coffee in Oaxaca City?
Where can you visit community forestry initiatives?
What is the legacy of Gregorio Chávez?
What are the lions made of in Llano Park?
