Latinx Conversation to Conservation

Event Description:

Being a minority student aspiring to work in a conservation related field is challenging due to lack of representation and exposure to diverse pathways that may lead to a rewarding career. Higher education institutions play an important role in breaching this gap for minority students. Join us on a panel with current and recently graduated students as they talk about their experience in internships and programs that helped expose them to diverse opportunities in conservation related work with different state and federal land management agencies.

Event Sponsor(s):

New Mexico Wild, Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks, Nuestra Tierra Conservation Project, and New Mexico Wildlife Federation, Hispanic Access Foundation
