“Let’s gather together and celebrate wellness in the outdoors and the protection of our special places in participation with Latino Conservation Week,” said Desert Community Wellness co-founder and President Kasey Peña.
“Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF),” according to the event’s website. “Latino Conservation Week was created to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources. During this week, community, nonprofit, faith-based and government organizations and agencies hold events throughout the country. From hiking and camping to community roundtables and film screenings, these activities promote conservation efforts in their community, and provide an opportunity for Latinos to show their support for permanently protecting our land, water and air.”
