Latino Verde: Acción Ambiental Comunitaria

Event Description:

On July 16th, Orlando will celebrate "Latino Conservation Week," an initiative of the Hispanic Access Foundation. Join us and experts from Wekiwa Springs State Park as they educate us with interesting facts about the importance of keeping our water sources and surroundings free of trash.

Latino Verde, Hispanic Access Foundation, Florida State Parks, Sierra Club, and Mi Familia Vota are pleased to invite you to participate in "Latino Verde: Acción Ambiental Comunitaria." This event invites the Hispanic community to engage in an activity that protects valuable natural resources such as Wekiwa Springs State Park. The goal is to collect micro-trash around the spring, as this is one of the main concerns for this park.

The action will take place on Saturday, July 16, 2022, starting at 8:30am at the park premises (Address:1800 Wekiwa Circle, Apopka FL 32712). Participants will have a transportation option if required, free admission, light lunch, drinks, collecting materials, and receive a participatory certificate. Participants are encouraged to stay and enjoy the park after the activity ends.

Invite your family and friends and help preserve our unique ecosystems! Registration is open at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Z7ZW7FV    

See you at the park!
