Latino Outdoors began with a simple question:
Where are the Latino-led organizations with conservation and the environment as a primary focus?
Thinking about the role we can play in the leadership of this field, we are working on four categories:
We ENGAGE in numerous outdoor activities for Latino communities of all ages and generations, including bilingual and Spanish speaking groups led by our volunteer staff.
We SERVE as a platform for sharing cultural connections and narratives through writing, video and stories.
We SUPPORT networks of Latino outdoor and environmental education professionals, foster community for mutual support, professional development, references, and other opportunities.
Finally, we INSPIRE youth to follow in the profession and attract other talent and expertise to the field.
