Out of this World Conservation

Event Description:

On July 25th during Latino Conservation Week

Martin Martinez an Ambassador of Latino Conservation Week and Por La Creacion. Will lead a team in an out of this world conservation experience. At NASA - Kennedy Space Center in Florida. 

Besides launching rockets, Kennedy Space Center is filled with beautiful, diverse natural habitats. At the beginning of the space program in 1962, NASA purchased 140,000 acres, establishing it as the Launch Operations Center (LOC). In November of 1963, it was renamed to the John F. Kennedy Space Center, after the late U.S. president.

After building launch pads and facilities, a large amount of land remained untouched. In 1963, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service established the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). Today, it focuses on protecting the 1,500 species of plants and animals within the refuge.
