La Chimenea, in Nueva Rosita, has become an industrial symbol for our Carboniferous Region.
Its construction dates back to the second decade of the twentieth century and represents the economic boom that sparked the industrialization of coal in the period of prosperity of the first half of the last century in the north of Coahuila.
This imposing structure rises to approximately 150 meters in height, and in its time was the highest in Latin America.
Its construction ended on August 14, 1929.
Whistle of the company
If we talk about La Chimenea from Nueva Rosita, we have to refer also to the Whistle of the Company, a sound that is part of our identity along to La Chimenea.
For decades, the whistle has marked time for the inhabitants of Nueva Rosita.
So we can find ourselves in a common situation, not knowing exactly what time it is but when you hear the whistle you know that it is either 12:00 or 12:30, depending on whether the whistle sounded once or twice. Orienting your times with the whistle of the company, as our grandparents did as part of that nostalgia that is not lost in time.

Another natural spectacle that happens thanks to the Sabinas river and wetlands, is the migration of birds arriving in late November and early December. Among the migratory birds you will see white pelicans, storks, herons, species of ducks, geese, kingfisher, plovers, among others. The area is rich in biodiversity including sightings of the eagle - our national symbol - and birds like the painted bunting (Passerina Ciris)
Taking care of the water, the vegetation and saying NO to illegal sale of birds and animals is very important for the birds to continue visiting the region. We are the hosts, let’s give them the treatment that we would like to receive away from home.
In the region there are 293 subject to special protection (Classification according to Official Mexican Standard 059)
Information by: Biologist Ricardo Israel Olivo Rodríguez, field officer in the area of protection of Don Martín natural resources.
BIOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE OF THE CARBONIFEROUS REGION
It is part of the third largest protected natural area of Mexico
Its area covers more than 1.5 million hectares
Water is one of the most important natural resources of this protected natural area.
The protected natural area comprises 15 municipalities, at least 77 ejidos, distributed in 3 discontinuous zones: one in the Carboniferous Region, one near Monclova, and one more around Cuatro Ciénegas.
In arid zones, it is invaluable to have permanent rivers such as the Sabinas and Álamos river
It is the union of 2 biogeographic zones: the Chihuahuan desert and the Tamaulipeco thicket
There inhabit unique species, endemic or in category protection like the golden eagle or the black bear.
The Carboniferous region is a very important corridor in the migratory route for the monarch butterfly
9. Millions of butterflies cross each year in late October and early November
They travel more than 4,000 km from the south of Canada to the states of Mexico and Michoacán
The milkweed is the plant where they lay their eggs, do not destroy it!
Did you know that ...? The monarchs who arrive in Mexico do not return to Canada, they all die. It is their young that fly north, where they reproduce and die. It is the fifth generation that comes back to the Region. That means that the butterflies that cross here have never visited Mexico and yet frequent the same regions and the same trees. The reason is a mystery.
Obstacles to migration include road crash, pesticide use, habitat loss, and predators
The Sabinas River and the wetlands of the area are vital for the monarch because they provide water, rest and food
The area was designated as the Ramsar Site for its wetlands of international importance since 2002.
