Pan Dulce Y Café en el Desierto

Event Description:

An event that will be an introduction to the Corn Creek visitor center and trails. We will have a meet and greet inside the visitor center where the participants will get the chance to explore the exhibits and ask any questions relating to the information provided. Participants may ask for any of the information to be translated or interpreted in Spanish so that everyone can enjoy the visitor center. The event will also provide sweet bread and coffee, other drinks will be provided as an alternative to the coffee for kids.

After everyone has gotten the chance to eat and explore the visitor center, there will be a short guided hike that will touch on 3 prominent features on the trails. The short guided hike is a simple introduction to the trails, in hopes that the participants come recreate on their own in the future with family and friends. Once the guided hike is completed, the participants will return to the visitor center where they can ask for any additional information. The event will have a table that provides more information on other public lands in the Las Vegas area so that they have different options. The participants will be free to go after all this but will be welcomed back in hopes that they pass along their experiences with families and friends. The ultimate end goal will be seeing a higher representation of Latinos recreating on public lands but specifically at Corn Creek Visitor Center.
