Event Description:Estamos Aqui! We are here! The Latino population is the fastest growing American demographic. They are also among the most under-represented groups in conservation, outdoor recreation, and environmental education organizations. What are the causes and consequences of this divide? What are the challenges and opportunities? In this feature-length documentary film we will uncover and celebrate the often little-known but beautiful and vibrant Latino heritage for conservation and outdoor recreation. Latino families and individuals from all over the United States are already connecting with their history, their culture, their communities and the planet through powerful, meaningful and culturally relevant interactions with nature. In Estamos Aqui we will meet these inspiring people, hear their stories and discover how our connection to nature simultaneously makes us unique and brings us together.
