All Girls Trail Crew at Mount Rainier, in partnership with Latino Outdoors

The All Girls Trail Crew is open to Latina youth ages 14-18 who live in Washington state. The crew will be spending a week engaging in stewardship and care of Mt. Rainier National Park, while also hiking and camping in this iconic park. Youth participants will be paid a $150 stipend for their work, and are receiving gear donations for future adventures courtesy of MSR and REI.

In 2017 and 2018, the crew built trails, explored rivers and had important and meaningful conversations about diversity in the outdoors.

"Be a Good Egg" Outreach Event

Since 2013, Audubon New York staff, volunteers, and partners have been working to increase the awareness of and reduce threats to beach-nesting birds by encouraging beach-goers to pledge to “share the shore” with Piping Plovers and other beach-nesting bird species.

During our on-the-beach outreach days, we set up a tent and table at the entrance to heavily-visited Long Island beaches and engage with as many beach-goers as we can to teach about beach-nesting birds. We'll also set up activities and games to further engage our audience. We provide visitors with pamphlets and brochures about beach-nesting bird biology, our conservation work, and information on how to reduce disturbances to birds. Then, we ask visitors to sign our “Be a Good Egg” pledge and therefore agree to keep out of fenced off nesting areas, keep trash off the beach, and keep dogs off of nesting beaches.

Prior to these outreach events, we’ll ask new volunteers to complete a brief online training webinar. Please contact NYcoast@audubon.org for more information and registration to volunteer for this exciting outreach program.

July 13th 2019 - Sunken Meadow State Park Kings Park, NY

We'll talk about their characteristics and adaptations, why and when they migrate, their life cycle, and more.

For 2019, the Arizona Trail Association would like to provide an opportunity to screen three short films about conservation in the desert southwest:

• Land, Water y Comunidad – a short film from the HAF exploring the relationship Latinos across the nation have with Land and Water Conservation Fun sites.
• Soy Rojo – this Spanish-language film explores the importance of the Colorado River and its tributaries, the impact human developments on the river and measures that can be taken to protect this important ecosystem.
• The Arizona National Scenic Trail – a short film introducing the trail and how community efforts have created a recreational amenity that can also act as a critical tool in conservation. Help us celebrate 25 years of the Arizona Trail in 2019.

Each film will be followed with opportunities to continue the conversation about the future of conservation efforts and how each of us can get involved in protecting the places we love.

Community Waste Not-Educational Outreach Event

The event will take place July 19th, 9am-4pm, at the King County Wastewater Treatment Plant. This is a partnership with the King County wastewater treatment plant, who strive to be an inclusive facility. The event will include activities outdoors at their CitySoil farm which would include getting hands on in the garden, lunch, and then a wastewater treatment plant tour. The CitySoil Farm is an urban space used for environmental education to promote community food systems. The Farm’s mission/vision is to educate the public about community participation and innovation, and ecologically and socially sustainable food systems, to help people make informed decisions and develop innovative solutions for food challenges.

Water Systems and Food Systems Education Field Trips South Wastewater Treatment Plant and CitySoil Farm
What happens when we “borrow” water from the water cycle in our homes, schools and businesses? In this field trip, participants will learn how they participate in the water cycle every time they turn on their tap, run the dishwasher or even go to the bathroom. We also cover how both water and nutrients are recycled as a reusable resource and how choices we all have on a daily basis impact the water cycle.
Then participants will spend the afternoon at CitySoil Farm on South Treatment Plant property learning about how this community farm uses the recycled resources from the treatment plant (i.e. biosoilds and recycled water) to grow food. Participants would also be participating in an on-going and seasonal project to help maintain this community farm and continue to help us donate all the food to the White Center Food Bank.

Rito Seco Trail Construction @ San Luis: Mike O'Brien Memorial Project

Where You'll Be:
In Southern Colorado, the small town of San Luis was originally established in 1851 and is the oldest continuously occupied town in the state. Nearby, on the western edge of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the recently established Rito Seco Park has great potential to serve the local communities and is part of Costilla County's master plan to develop a system of trails, recreation resources, and protected lands meant to represent the unique natural and cultural heritage of the area.

What You'll Do:
Build a brand new trail with VOC during Latino Conservation Week! On this moderately sized project of 60-75 people, volunteers ages 14+ will spend the weekend creating a new section of trail in Rito Seco Park that will provide a short, easy loop out of a picnic area to beaver ponds and the ruins of three historic cabins. You'll get to select from a variety of work, including more technical tasks for those who enjoy a challenge. Campsites are provided nearby and meals will be provided by our volunteer Crew Chefs on Saturday and Sunday.

Why It Matters:
While surrounded by stunning vistas, communities in Costilla County have a long history of public access issues as the vast majority of land is privately owned. This project is part of a much larger initiative to expand recreational access and encourage stewardship within the local community and your efforts will be a tremendous help in turning the County's plan into a reality.

Need-to-Know Details:
Please register for this project so that we know to expect you!
You can register via our website at www.voc.org/project/rito-seco-trail-construction-san-luis-mike-obrien-memorial-project
Once registered, we will send volunteers more specific information such as project maps, daily schedule, and what to bring.

Minors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on overnight projects. Minors under 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on single-day projects.
Volunteers are responsible for providing their own camping equipment. VOC will provide meals, tools, and work gloves.
Cancellation: Our partners rely on VOC volunteers to accomplish critical stewardship needs, and our projects often have wait lists. If you need to cancel, please contact Emily Schaefer at 303-715-1010 ext. 116 or at emily@voc.org as soon as possible so we can free your spot for another volunteer and have a full workforce.

Nearby, on the western edge of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the recently established Rito Seco Park has great potential to serve the local communities and is part of Costilla County's master plan to develop a system of trails, recreation resources, and protected lands meant to represent the unique natural and cultural heritage of the area.

What You'll Do:
Build a brand new trail with VOC during Latino Conservation Week! On this moderately sized project of 60-75 people, volunteers ages 14+ will spend the weekend creating a new section of trail in Rito Seco Park that will provide a short, easy loop out of a picnic area to beaver ponds and the ruins of three historic cabins. You'll get to select from a variety of work, including more technical tasks for those who enjoy a challenge. Campsites are provided nearby and meals will be provided by our volunteer Crew Chefs on Saturday and Sunday.

Why It Matters:
While surrounded by stunning vistas, communities in Costilla County have a long history of public access issues as the vast majority of land is privately owned. This project is part of a much larger initiative to expand recreational access and encourage stewardship within the local community and your efforts will be a tremendous help in turning the County's plan into a reality.

Need-to-Know Details:
Please register for this project so that we know to expect you!
You can register via our website at www.voc.org/project/rito-seco-trail-construction-san-luis-mike-obrien-memorial-project
Once registered, we will send volunteers more specific information such as project maps, daily schedule, and what to bring.

Minors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on overnight projects. Minors under 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on single-day projects.
Volunteers are responsible for providing their own camping equipment. VOC will provide meals, tools, and work gloves.
Cancellation: Our partners rely on VOC volunteers to accomplish critical stewardship needs, and our projects often have wait lists. If you need to cancel, please contact Emily Schaefer at 303-715-1010 ext. 116 or at emily@voc.org as soon as possible so we can free your spot for another volunteer and have a full workforce.

Anyone can plant a rain garden in their own yard. You must attend all 5 online classes, and build a rain garden to earn the Master Rain Gardener certification. Field trip TBD. Hosted by Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner's Office. Instructors: Susan Bryan, Rain Garden Coordinator; Harry Sheehan, Deputy Water Resources Commissioner; Shannan Gibb-Randall, Principal at InSite Design Studio, Inc.

Plastic Pollution Awareness

It’s almost impossible to go one day without using a single-use plastic before discarding it into the trashcan. The problem with most plastics is that they never really decompose, but instead break down into smaller and smaller pieces, even to microscopic levels when exposed to the elements. Unfortunately, the immense amount of plastic pollution produced in the last few decades is having a health and safety impact on seabirds, marine mammals, wildlife, and people. However, communities everywhere can be the solution to plastic pollution. For this Latino Conservation Week program, we will focus on building awareness on plastic pollution and ways we can reduce our plastic use to help the environment we all depend on.

Here the three ways we are celebrating it: Camping, enjoying the sunset, birdwatching, kayaking, and salsa dancing!
Do not miss enjoying our Sanctuary as very few people have done so before.
- On Friday night, we will do a sunset/night bird walk, icebreaker games, leave no trace talk, Point Reyes National Seashore talk (by a Hispanic Access Foundation Intern), campfire, giveaways, and will have a great time together salsa dancing while dinner is being served.
- On Saturday, we will divide the groups in two, one will stay and do restoration work on site and the other will go on a interpretative kayak trip in the bay. We will kayak along Sausalito’s waterfront viewing the local wildlife, including seals, and sea lions.

Bio Blitz at La Mancha Wetland

In honor of Latino Conservation Week, we’re having a BioBlitz at La Mancha Wetland!

What’s a bio blitz, you ask? Basically, it’s a way that regular people and kids can participate in real science, by taking pictures of different plants and animals that we can use later to collect real data about a special place. So bring the whole family and come on out to the pond for a fun-filled afternoon!
