What is Latino Conservation Week? 
Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation. 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, non-profit, 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. 
There has been tremendous growth in activities since Latino Conservation Week launched in 2014:
First year (2014): 9 events
Ninth year (2022): 220+ events. The Angeles Chapter is proud to have hosted one of these event in 2022 with our ‘Birding Pan y Cafecito’ at Stoneview Nature and our Partner Nature Nexus.
“Latino Conservation Week helps break down barriers for Latino communities to access public lands and waters, encourages new opportunities for engagement, and inspires the next generation of environmental stewards,” said Maite Arce, President and CEO of Hispanic Access Foundation.
