Environmental Impacts in our Communities

The Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada partnered up with the University of Nevada Reno to research the impacts that environmental degradation has on working families, Indigenous peoples, and communities of color. We will have a panel discussion with people that participated in this project and present our initial findings. We think it is important to continue this conversation with communities that are being impacted and what better time than Latino Conservation Week.

There will be Spanish translation.

Bilingual Tour Programs at Manzanar National Historic Site: "Echoes of Resilience/Voces de Valentía"

Manzanar will host four days of bilingual tours and film screenings during Latino Conservation Week. The special events titled "Echoes of Resilience/Voces de Valentía" will highlight inspiring stories about some of the people at Manzanar whose courage and resilience helped them navigate through a difficult time in our nation’s history. One of the featured stories will be of Ralph Lazo, a 16-year-old Mexican-American who chose to live within Manzanar’s barbed wire to be with his friends. His story is told in Stand Up for Justice: The Ralph Lazo Story, produced by Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR) and Visual Communications in 2004.

Rocio Gomez, a Latino Heritage intern, will lead the "Echoes of Resilience/Voces de Valentía" site tour of the Japanese gardens starting at 9:30 a.m. and introduce the film Stand Up for Justice: The Ralph Lazo Story at 12:30 p.m.

These special events are free and open to the public. Visitors interested in the walking tours should meet in the Visitor Center lobby shortly before 9:30 a.m. to sign up. The first ten visitors to sign up for each bilingual tour will receive a Manzanar souvenir water bottle.

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat, and sunscreen. There are no food services at Manzanar; bring snacks and water. There will be places to refill water bottles on the tour.

Saguaros to Barrios: A History of Mexican American Homesteaders and Downtown Adobe Dwellers

Join us for a one hour program about life in Tucson in the late 1800s. It starts with a film of early homesteaders and concludes with a presentation by ALEX LA PIERRE, National Park Service Latino Heritage Intern and MAGDA MANKEL, Saguaro National Park Next Generation Ranger.

Pre Statehood: Life in the late 1800s in Tucson (Arizona became a state in 1912)

The valleys of Rincon and Tanque Verde Creeks are part of what is now Saguaro National Park’s Rincon Mountain District. Saguaro’s visitor center film highlights early Mexican American settlers who built sprawling ranches on these wide open spaces during the 1890s. Most famously, La Cebedilla, the home of Emilio Carrillo, later owned by his son Rafael and still going strong today as the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch, which lies just outside park boundaries today.

The homes of downtown Tucson’s Barrio Viejo tell the story of a broad pattern of American history: the growth and development of Spanish presidios into Mexican frontier settlements and, eventually, American cities. The Barrio has one of the largest concentrations of Sonoran Adobe architecture in the US, and its streetscapes express the Hispanic architectural traditions of Northern Mexico that migrated into the Southwest during the Spanish and Mexican periods.

Did any of these early ranchers also have homes in Barrio Viejo? Closer to schools? There is some indication they did, but more research is needed. In honor of the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service (NPS) in 2016, new initiatives began to tell a more complete story of America’s diverse people and places. Among these is the NPS American Latino Heritage Initiative, which recognized Tucson’s downtown Barrio Viejo neighborhood as a site worthy of being designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Volunteers are needed to help research and document the people and the homes of Barrio Viejo. Come join us to learn more about this initiative and how to help Tucson’s Barrio Viejo become a National Historic Landmark.

What is a National Historic Landmark?
National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) are cultural properties confirmed by the Secretary of the Interior as being nationally significant. Today, more than 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction. Acknowledged as our country’s most important historic places, National Park Service staff help guide the nomination process for new Landmarks and provide assistance to existing Landmarks, which include buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects that possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States in history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. Today there are approximately 2500 NHLs in the country. Among these in southeastern Arizona are the San Xavier Del Bac Mission, Tumamoc Hill, Tombstone, and the Titan Missile Site.
Authorized by the Historic Sites Act of 1935 (Public Law 74-292) and administered by the National Park Service, the NHL program focuses public attention on places of exceptional value to the nation as a whole. While some NHLs are included within the National Park System, the NHL program also contributes to the preservation of many outstanding historic places under private ownership. Designation as an NHL increases public awareness of the importance of a historic resource. It opens opportunities for historic preservation grants and provides advice and technical support from NPS experts. It is important to note that listing as a National Historic Landmark creates no new property regulation.

Movie Screening of “Estamos Aqui” and Community Conversation on the Cultural Connection of Hispanics to the Land, with light refreshments provided.

Estamos Aqui! We are here! The Latino population is the fastest growing American demographic. They are also among the most under-represented groups in conservation, outdoor recreation, and environmental education organizations. What are the causes and consequences of this divide? What are the challenges and opportunities? In this feature-length documentary film we will uncover and celebrate the often little-known but beautiful and vibrant Latino heritage for conservation and outdoor recreation. Latino families and individuals from all over the United States are already connecting with their history, their culture, their communities and the planet through powerful, meaningful and culturally relevant interactions with nature. In Estamos Aqui we will meet these inspiring people, hear their stories and discover how our connection to nature simultaneously makes us unique and brings us together.

Vamos a Pescar - Shelter Island Pier

This program will introduce fishing to youth and families and provide hands-on fishing skills development. All fishing equipment will be provided.

The Embarcadero Park Pier is a t-shaped public fishing pier located in the Embarcadero Marina Park South on San Diego Bay in downtown San Diego, right next to the Convention Center. The pier attracts small baitfish to school at the pilings, and draws in predators. Typically, spotted bay bass are the primary target here, but all of the usual San Diego Bay “suspects” are present.

We will be looking for a geocache at Jamaica Pond. Geocaching is a real-world hunt for a hidden box with an object or a logbook in it guided by hints and GPS coordinates. Outdoors Rx offers free bilingual programs year-round in local urban green spaces to get families spending more time together OUTSIDE. When we spend more time outside, we are healthier, happier, and can connect more with our neighborhood and natural surroundings.

Atlanta Audubon Society Monthly Meeting

For the past 25 years or so, amphibians have been disappearing globally from developed areas as well as pristine environments. Scientists have identified multiple anthropogenic factors contributing synergistically to amphibian declines. Therefore, a multifaceted approach is necessary to address the amphibian decline phenomenon. The Amphibian Foundation, based in Atlanta, addresses SE regional as well as global amphibian declines through an international partnership focusing on targeted programs for specific imperiled amphibian species. The foundation also has a strong training and educational program for students and citizen scientists. Partnering with regional agencies, such as Southeast Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, GA DNR and Orianne Society, and federal partners such as USFWS and USGS as well as global partners like Amphibian Ark and the Amphibian Survival Alliance, the Amphibian Foundation provides a critical role in combatting amphibian declines at the global, as well as the neighborhood level. Currently, 43% of the world’s amphibian populations are documented as in decline or already extinct. The Amphibian Foundation provides a program that engages the community to become involved in saving this important and biodiverse group of animals.

Mark Mandica is the Executive Director of The Amphibian Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and conservation of amphibians.

Pinta tu historia

The San Juan National Historic Site will host an event on Sunday, July 23rd, that will provide a
family-oriented space for people to reinterpret their Latino roots through art. The event, named
Pinta tu historia will include 2 main activities: live paintings from the local artist José I. Felix
García, M.A. and several stations with art-related tools and materials for people to either follow
Felix’s models or to paint what they interpret is the history of the park and/or how it connects to
their personal and collective Hispanic roots. Felix has a project titled Reconstrucción Histórica y
Conceptualización A Través del Arte in which he aims to reinterpret different parts of the Puerto
Rican history (including the park) through his vision and artwork. Also, there will be special
materials for kids to create their own artistic pins. For this event, we will provide several stations
that will consist of long tables around the main plaza at Castillo San Cristóbal in which people
can actively join and create their own paintings. There will be a panel in which people can hang
their paintings after they finish to create a collective piece of history through art that can be
shared in social media. The activity will be hosted and supported by Latino Heritage Intern
Yaneris Soto, volunteers, and park rangers.
As a complement of the activity, we will invite a Bomba group for the enjoyment of our visitors.
This type of music is deeply inserted in our Hispanic and Caribbean roots and we expect people
to actively integrate into this artistic expression.

Bayside Birding at San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge

Meet at Bayside Birding & Walking Trail on the San Diego Bay NWR. We'll be looking for marine wildlife and birds, and possibly a short service project such as trash pickup or weed-pulling.
The tide will be at a 1.5 - 3 foot height which will be great for finding shorebirds in the Otay River.

We'll have simple goodies and giveaways, and hopefully perfect weather. It may be hot, so make sure the folks you invite wear sunscreen, hat, and bring a reusable water bottle. Comfortable walking shoes are good too. The trail is stroller-friendly, so make sure the whole family is invited!

Tree Indexing with Climate Resolve & AMIGOS

We want to know how much tree canopy is available at Whittier Narrows! Trees are essential to combat the urban heat island effect. In urban and suburban areas where impermeable surfaces (asphalt, concrete) are prominent, trees help to keep surface and air temperatures cooler by providing shade and evapotranspiration.

Become a citizen scientist by helping Climate Resolve and Amigos de los Rios measure tree canopy at Whittier Narrows Park. We will train you the day of and provide all the materials.
Water and granola bars will be available.

Indexing helps give us a baseline of the number and variety of species currently in the park. It tells us the age and condition of the trees so we can assess their overall health and the amount of carbon they sequester. We can also better assess which trees have been infected by the Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer and other pests. Evaluation of the canopy and temperature readings helps us better understand how these trees help reduce the effects of urban heat island.
