Event Description:Join REI Tucson and the Arizona Trail Association for a special film screening to celebrate Latino Conservation Week 2019! Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF). Latino Conservation Week (LCW) was created to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources. For 2019, the Arizona Trail Association would like to provide an opportunity to screen three short films about conservation in the desert southwest:
• Land, Water y Comunidad – a short film from the HAF exploring the relationship Latinos across the nation have with Land and Water Conservation Fun sites.
• Soy Rojo – this Spanish-language film explores the importance of the Colorado River and its tributaries, the impact human developments on the river and measures that can be taken to protect this important ecosystem.
• The Arizona National Scenic Trail – a short film introducing the trail and how community efforts have created a recreational amenity that can also act as a critical tool in conservation. Help us celebrate 25 years of the Arizona Trail in 2019.
Each film will be followed with opportunities to continue the conversation about the future of conservation efforts and how each of us can get involved in protecting the places we love.
