Pine Rocklands Naturewalk through Rockdale Pineland Preserve

Pine Rocklands occur only in South Florida, the Florida Keys, and some islands of the Bahamas. These pinelands, interspersed with hardwood hammocks, once covered 185,000 acres of Miami-Dade County. By the time the city of Miami celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1996, only 2% of the pine forest remained within the urbanized areas of the County and outside of the protective border of Everglades National Park. Take a journey though one of the remaining urban pine rocklands oasis with a walk through Rockdale Pineland Preserve!

Archaeology Field Day

The San Luis Valley in southern Colorado has a fascinating archaeological record dating back 12,000 years. The Rio Grande National Forest Heritage Program works to help inform people of this rich history through the archaeological record. For Latino Conservation Week the Rio Grande National Forest Heritage Program has been working with the Move Mountains non-profit youth group to provide the members of Move Mountains with an interactive archaeological experience on public lands. Move Mountains Youth Group is a non-profit organization that employs young community members from San Luis over the summer. The program educates the members on conservation, community organizing, environmental activism, entrepreneurism, etc, and helps connect them to the land and their history. San Luis has little access to public land, however is one of the oldest settlements in Colorado.
On Friday, July 20th, 20 children and 4 adult chaperones will be shown multiple historical and prehistoric archaeological sites on BLM land, they will also participate in interactive activities and a mild hike. During these activities the Rio Grande National Forest Heritage Program will inform the participants on opportunities and jobs associated with conservation. There is an abundance of public lands in the San Luis Valley and we hope to help connect these children to these areas, their heritage and opportunities in conservation.

Latina Trail Crew at Mt. Rainier

The Latina Trail Crew is comprised of 6 youth and 2 leaders who will be spending a week engaging in stewardship and care of Mt. Rainier National Park. Youth participants will be paid a $150 stipend for their work, and are receiving stoves and mess kits for future adventures courtesy of MSR.

In 2017, the crew built trails, explored rivers and had difficult conversations about diversity in the outdoors. All nine girls left the program feeling inspired and having contributed over 30 hours of volunteer trail work each. We're looking forward to another great trip this year.

Family Friendly Native Plant Seed Collection for Ecological Restoration Efforts

Boulder County Seed Collection I - Family Friendly - Minimum Age: 8 with Adult. Volunteers will help ensure the success of future public land restoration projects by hand-collecting seeds from a variety of native species, including grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs in the foothills of Boulder,CO. Local botanists will be working on site and will provide identification of wildflowers and other native plants during the project.

Why collect native seeds? Using native seeds in re-vegetation efforts is essential to restoring native plant diversity. Some native species are not available commercially, are too expensive, or the available seeds are not ecologically appropriate. Our collected seeds will be used in local habitat restoration projects, or may be grown out in an agricultural setting to increase them 100 or 1000 fold, vastly increasing the amount of locally-adapted seed that is available for local restoration projects.

LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED!
The location of seed collections can only be determined 2-3 days prior to each event, given the varying growth rates of the many species we collect. This project is in Boulder County. Once you register, you'll receive info by e-mail 2-3 days prior about the location, directions and species you'll be collecting.

LCW on the Arizona National Scenic Trail

Join the Arizona Trail Association and the Coronado National Forest in celebrating Latino Conservation Week building new Arizona Trail! We have started a project in Happy Jack, just southeast of Flagstaff, to get the trail off of old forest roads and onto brand new singletrack trail. This is the first major trailbuilding project on the AZT since 2015, and we're especially hoping to get first time trail volunteers and outdoor enthusiasts on board!

Participants should be prepared to walk up to 2 miles over uneven terrain carrying a tool. Tasks include everything from digging and moving big rocks to trimming vegetation and raking dirt. Other jobs include breathing fresh air, enjoying sunshine and getting dirty. No special skills are needed except a desire to work hard and give back to the trail community. Because we will be using heavy tools, please no children under the age of 14 for this event. For other family-friendly events, please contact us at volunteer@aztrail.org.

Lunches and snacks will be provided. Participants should bring a bag or backpack and at least 2 liters of water per person. Personal protection equipment such as work gloves and eye protection is recommended, but we will also provide if you don't have your own.

Who's on First...the New York Cubans! - A Quien le Toca Primero...los cubanos de Nueva York?

In celebration of Latino Conservation Week, Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park will hold a specialized event surrounding the New York Cubans. The New York Cubans were a Negro League Baseball team that played all over the country including Paterson's own Hinchliffe Stadium.

These events will take place in Mary Ellen Kramer and Park staff will be there to give a talk about the New York Cuban's history.

Conejos Rafting The Browns Canyon National Monument

Kido's from around the San Luis Valley in Conejos County Colorado are, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, white water rafting down the amazing Browns Canyon National Monument!!!! Ana Lee Vargas from Conejos Clean Water, a local non-profit community organization in Conejos County CO. said, "Latino Conservation Week, for us, is about creating new opportunities for our communities youth and we are so excited to be able to make this happen this year. Let's GO Rafting!!!"

Browns Canyon includes 11,836 acres of the San Isabel National Forest and 9,750 acres of Bureau of Land Management land. The area is unique, towering over the Arkansas River, itself a beacon to white water rafters and anglers. The granite walls of the canyon stand like a series of a natural cathedral spires that change hues as the light of day wanes. The natural resources star on the monument is the Arkansas River, which provides recreational activity on the river and along the shoreline. The monument area is a recreationist’s dream with plenty of opportunity to raft, kayak, bike, horseback ride, hike, nature watch, photography and stargazing. The river is named a gold medal river for its world-class wild trout fishing. The Arkansas has long been considered the most popular whitewater rafting destination in America and features rapids with names like Canyon Doors, Zoom Flume and Seidel’s Suckhole.

Mindfulness on Mt. Evans

Join us at the Mt. Goliath Nature Center for a mindful day on the mountain during which we will engage in bilingual storytelling specific to our individual and greater connection to the Earth and our natural environment.

The proposed event will feature start with a short, guided walk on the Bristlecone Pine Loop Trail (about ¼ mile) during which we will encourage mindful discussion in preparation for the storytelling circle.

We will follow the guided mindfulness walk with a facilitated storytelling circle with a focus on the narratives surrounding the question, “What does nature mean to you?”

The event as a whole is designed with the purpose of exploring and enhancing our human connection to the Earth in mind. In exploring that human connection, we can empower ourselves and others to connect with the Earth and foster a passion for caring for and conserving our public lands and spaces.

We'll be finishing up by noon, but because of limited picnic/lunch space at the Nature Center for a group lunch, we will NOT be having a group lunch. Those who so wish are encouraged to bring a lunch to enjoy somewhere on the mountain! We will also provide participants with a list of lunch options in Idaho Springs. Before departing, we will be doing a giveaway for some Columbia gear and swag!

We have 15 spots available. The fee to the Nature Center is $10 per car so carpooling is encouraged. Fees will be refunded.
