It’s #LatinoConservationWeek and we’re sharing different ways to get active in your community that will help the environment! Everything from picking up trash to volunteering can make a difference.
- Pick up trash: Trash left out in our communities and in nature can end up in our oceans and rivers. Picking up trash can make a huge impact on local water sources and our drinking water. Make sure you take your trash with you when you’re out in nature!
- Buy and plant a native plant: Native plants are adapted to our local climate and therefore require less water and no fertilizers. They help reduce air pollution and provide shelter and food for wildlife.
- Volunteer for an event at the Angeles National Forest: Volunteering not only gives you valuable experiences but can also have a positive impact in your community and public spaces. Take the time to invest in the protection of the Angeles National Forest by joining a team to pick up trash, give interpretive talks, build trails, and study stream conditions!
- Talk to your friends and family about saving water: Take the time to learn about different ways to conserve water and talk to your friends and family about it. Having knowledge about the importance of saving water and different ways to do so can inspire others to do their part.
- Contact your representatives: Contacting your representatives by email, phone, or writing letters expressing your support for environmental legislation like the PUBLIC Lands Act will encourage them to support our work. Make your voice heard!
