Latino Conservation Week (July 17-25, 2021) provides an opportunity for Latino communities to come together and demonstrate their passion for our natural, cultural and recreational resources.
At Interior, this week is an opportunity for us to shine a spotlight on the contributions that the Latino community has made to conservation and stewardship across the Department.
Here are a few ways you can celebrate Latino Conservation Week with us!
Get outside and enjoy your public lands this Latino Conservation Week. But before you do, learn how to navigate parks, find events and plan like a park ranger. Parks are very busy this summer, so a little trip planning can ensure that your only surprises are happy ones.
Latino heritage and experiences are a vital aspect of America's rich and diverse past. Discover the remarkable stories that are preserved in our national parks and historic places.
Get involved in the conservation of public lands and your community through volunteer projects and citizen science. Participate in an event or find volunteer opportunities near you. With your help, we can enjoy our public lands while preserving them for future generations!
We invite you to learn about a few of the Latino conservationists who represent us across Interior and conserve America’s natural resources every day.
#WeAreUSFWS amplifies the voices of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s workforce and leaders in conservation and #SomosUSFWS features Latino employees making their mark in conservation. Discover their stories or watch the #SomosUSFWS video.
You can also learn about Latino conservationists at Interior by reading the National Park Service’s Meet Latino Conservationists series or by checking out mini-biographies from past Hispanic Access Foundation interns.
Share what you want to protect and how you connect with nature during Latino Conservation Week using the hashtags #LCW2021, #LatinoConservationWeek, #WeAreUSFWS / #SomosUSFWS, and #FindYourPark / #EncuentraTuParque.
