Welcome

Las Nubes Project was created by Dr. Howard Daugherty from the Faculty of Environmental Studies, after a generous donation made by noted Toronto physician Dr. Woody Fisher to York University in 1998.

Under the direction of Prof. Felipe Montoya the Las Nubes Project mission is to contribute to community well-being in ways that are compatible and conducive to environmental conservation. Las Nubes does this through faculty and student research, environmental education, and through community engagement initiatives. By means of the Project's permanent and long-term presence and relationship with local communities and organizations, Las Nubes aims to develop a grounded theory and praxis around the sustainability of healthy and gratifying rural lifeways respectful of, and in harmony with the natural environment.
