#AdvocacyAfuera: California 30x30 Equity Panel Conversation

With the start of the California 30x30 process this year the subject of equity and conservation has come up in several conversations. Like conservation, equity does not have on definition. Equity across the board can have many different meanings and look different in each region and community in the state of California. For this year's Latino Conservation Week, Hispanic Access Foundation will host a panel discussion with representatives from low-income, underserved, underrepresented, BIPOC communities throughout California. Having a conversation around equity and conservation and what that looks like for each region is important to highlight. We cannot have a one-size-fits-all solution. This event will be an open conversation between community members from throughout CA, local elected officials, and agency staff. 

 

Please register at: https://www.airmeet.com/e/f05b4250-caeb-11eb-8cf1-9fef55037d91

Para la Semana Latina de la Conservación de este año, Hispanic Access Foundation quiere organizar una mesa redonda con representates de la comunidades de bajor ingresos, subatendidad, subrepresentadas y BIPOC de toda California. Es importante destacar la conversación en torno a le equidad y la conservación y lo que significa para cada región. No podemos tener una solución única para todos.

Dia de Conservación Ecologica: Stewardship Saturday

Help us kick off Latino Conservation Week with a day of preserving and protecting our native habitats. If the weather and water conditions are right, we will send out a canoe team to clean trash from the pristine water of the Armand Bayou and along the nearby banks. If a water clean up is not possible, we will plan to head into the riparian forest to perform much needed maintenance along our trails.

Ayúdanos a iniciar Latino Conservation Week con un día de conservación para preservar y proteger nuestros hábitats nativos. Si el clima permita, enviaremos un equipo de canoas para limpiar basura del agua prístina del Armand Bayou y de las orillas cercanas. Si no podemos limpiar por canoa, planearemos ir al bosque ribereño a mantener nuestros senderos.

Plantando para nuestra pradera / Planting for our prairie

Coastal Tallgrass prairie is one of the most endangered ecosystems in North America. Only 1% of wild tallgrass prairie remains and we only have 1% at ABNC. The natural systems which support this native habitat have mostly vanished and they are now people-dependent. This means that humans must actively work to preserve and protect them. When we do, all benefit - plant, animal, and human communities alike.

  • 8:30 AM Make Seed Balls (1.5 hours): Participants join Jim Duran at the Greenhouse to make seed balls and then visit the prairie to explore prairie ecology and conservation. Mini-Hike (20mins) to Prairie Loop back to greenhouse
  • 10:30 AM Potting for the Prairie (1.5 hours): Pot historic prairie plants with Jim Duran. These plants that will eventually live in our native prairie, and learn about conservation efforts carried out through-out the year at Armand Bayou Nature Center.

Spanish and English speaking volunteers will be on-site to help guide the group.

Out of this World Conservation

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.

Película: El Futuro de Nuestro Hogar

Ver el estreno el 17 de julio: https://suwa.org/es/utah-silvestre/?utm_source=HAF&utm_medium=calendar&utm_campaign=LCW21_ES&utm_content=post_link

Los bosques no suben solos con su gran habilidad absorber carbono de atmosfera, y transformar contaminantes en plantas. Nuestros desiertos también son vitales para reducir el carbono atmosférico, guardar los combustibles fósiles en el suelo, y ser hogar para la vida silvestre.

El 17 de julio, vaya al SUWA.org/silvestre para el estreno de la película súper corto, El Futuro de Nuestro Hogar. Esta película está en inglés y español. Se concentra en el rol que las tierras silvestres de Utah tengan para prevenir la extinción en masa de vida silvestre y abordando la crisis climática.

Extracción de los combustibles fósiles de nuestra tierra pública daña significativamente la salud comunitaria, especialmente la salud de latinos. Pero latino querencia para nuestra herencia compartida puede salvaguardar nuestro salud y futuros entre la protección permanente de las tierras silvestres de roca roja de los estados unidos. ¿Se unirá a latinos para Utah silvestre? ¡Visite SUWA.org/silvestre el 17 de julio!

Movie: The Future of Our Home

Short movie premiere on July 17: https://suwa.org/utah-silvestre/?utm_source=HAF&utm_medium=calendar&utm_campaign=LCW21_EN&utm_content=post_link

Forests are not alone in their valuable ability to sequester carbon from the atmosphere, turn pollutants into plant matter to address climate change. Our deserts are also vital for reducing atmospheric carbon, keeping fossil fuels in the ground, and being the homeplace for wildlife. 

On July 17, head to SUWA.org for the premiere of the extra short film, “The Future of Our Home”. This movie is in Spanish and English, focusing on the role that Utah's outstanding wild lands play in preventing mass extinction of wildlife, and addressing the climate emergency. 

Fossil fuel extraction on public land significantly harms Latino community health. But Latino querencia for our shared herencia can safeguard our health and our futures through the permanent protection of America’s red rock wilderness. Will you join Latinos for Utah wilderness? Visit SUWA.org on July 17!

Guided Hike with Latino Outdoors Western Massachusetts & Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust - Ludlow, MA

When: July 17, 2021 10 AM - 1 PM

Where: Facing Rock Wildlife Management Area 60 Bridle Rd in Ludlow, MA 

Join Latino Outdoors Western Mass and Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust in celebrating Latino Conservation Week 2021 with a kick off event at Facing Rock Wildlife Management Area in Ludlow, MA! 

We will be offering guided hikes along 2 different areas of the park - one moderate loop through the woods (about 1.5 miles) and one more advanced hike to a scenic summit view (about 4 miles). Guided hikes of the woods loop will be offered at 10 am and 11 am. The guided hike to the scenic summit will start at 11 am. We welcome you to join us!

If you aren’t able to join us for a hike, Latino Outdoors and Mount Grace will also be set up at the entrance of the conservation area to offer information on the park, local conservation, and some fun activities to get to know our local natural space. Snacks, extra water and fun activities (including an optional treasure hunt!) will be provided to everyone!

If you plan to join us for a hike, we ask you to bring some water with you and be sure to wear some good and comfortable shoes to hike in - the trail is a bit rocky in some places. Please be sure to also dress for the weather - we expect it to be hot! Loose fitting clothes like shorts and t-shirts can make a big difference. 

A note about COVID safety: We take safety at our community outings very seriously. 

  • If you have not been vaccinated, please plan to wear a mask during your time with us at the event. 
  • If you are not feeling well or someone living with you has tested positive for COVID, please stay home. 
  • Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID will be asked to go home and rest. 
  • All participants will be required to complete a waiver to participate in one of our guided hikes - this information will allow us the ability to contact you in the event we learn that you might have been exposed to COVID during this outing. 
  • We trust everyone to self-certify that they do not have symptoms of COVID, have not been diagnosed with or had direct contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case in the past 14 days, and that they will participate fully with these safety policies and procedures. 

Together, we can ensure safe, positive, and meaningful experiences in nature.

Moda Sostenible

Join in on a fireside chat with up and coming Latinx fashion designers,  Luma Guarçoni and Elle Barbeito as they discuss their sustainability forward work.
 
Luma Guarçoni Louzada is a Brazilian fashion designer and researcher from Vitória, Espirito Santo, who has recently graduated from Central Saint Martins in London. In her personal work she is interested in traditional artisanal work, it's creative possibilities and the potential it has to be used as a tool for social change within the production chain of the industry. She is currently presenting her graduate collection 'An Ode to the Gambiarra', which is entirely made using traditional Brazillian artisanal techniques and textiles such as natural latex processed by native communities in Pará; organic cotton, grown, hand spun, naturally dyed and manually woven by women in Minas Gerais; clay beads made by traditional pot makers in Espirito Santo; fish scales hand cut by the women from a fishing colony in Rio Grande do Sul; traditional leatherwork by a saddle maker in Pernambuco and much more. Through 'An Ode to the Gambiarra' Luma hopes to recontextualize marginalized creative practices and materials by exploring them in the space of high luxury and maybe consequently present a new iteration of sustainability and an alternative vision for what fashion could be; an inclusive decolonial tool that works for social progress.
Instagram:@Lumaguarconi 
 
Elle Barbeito is an artist and designer based on the east-coast of the United States. A native of Miami, Florida, her intense process-based work takes on the unforgiving, and often brutal, aspects of the natural environment with industrious sensitivity. Her physical and emotional proximity to the Everglades propelled her into familiarizing herself with the necessary survival skills of hunting, skinning, and preserving skins for leatherwork. The dialogue around this process comes at a necessary time, where creatives should think to blend intention, sustainability, and function within their practice. Barbeito concocts these three elements into a bittersweet visual brew, immersing the viewer in a community defined by a swamp of survival.

San Ignacio Fiesta

LO ABQ| Rio Grande River Float

Join LO and Quiet Waters Paddling Adventure on a float down the Rio Grande on Sunday, July 25th. A light lunch will be provided. We will have 8 hard kayaks and 12 stand up paddle boards with kayak backing.

Where: Corrales Siphon Access Rd, Rio Rancho. Coordinates: 35° 17.160'N 106° 36.043'W we will meet here and take a shuttle to the Algodones drop off. Mask will be required when riding in the shuttle.

Time: 10:30am for check-in. Shuttles will leave at 10:45 please make sure to be on time. We will arrive back at Siphon Access Rd at roughly 3:00pm.

Footwear – The most common injuries during river activities are foot injuries, so protect your feet with secure footwear. Sharp rocks and occasional broken glass are potential hazards both along the riverbanks and the riverbed itself. As there's plenty of mud along the Rio Grande's riverbanks, choose footwear that can be thoroughly cleaned or hosed off following your trip. Water shoes, strap-on river sandals or old sneakers are all good choices. Bare feet and flip-flops are not acceptable.

Clothing - Avoid cotton, especially early and late in the season! Layer clothing, using quick-drying synthetics such as polyester, lycra, nylon, neoprene or wool. All of these materials dry fairly quickly and most importantly, continue to provide insulation when wet.

Sun Protection – sunglasses are encouraged and sunscreen is very important. We will provide sunscreen if needed.

Outdoor Screening of the Documentary DamNation Alongside Sustainable DIY

Drop by Harvest House Tuesday, July 20th from 8-10pm for a free outdoor showing of the documentary DamNation alongside a sustainable DIY for Latino Conservation Week, an initiative of the Hispanic Access Foundation! Harvest House is located off the historic downtown Denton’s Square at 331 E Hickory Street. At the event you will have the choice of making a dog toy or reusable bag out of an old tee shirt, so make sure to bring one you no longer use. Also, the first 20 attendees will receive a $5 voucher to spend on a ZP beverage at Harvest House!

Once seen as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, DamNation highlights the destructive nature damming has on ecosystems and cultures. The film was featured at the SXSW Film Festival and the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital in 2014. We hope this event sparks your curiosity to learn more about the importance of the nation’s rivers!

This event is sponsored by a Latino Conservation Week Grant and Harvest House. The Hispanic Access Foundation works to connect Latino leaders and elevates their voices in underrepresented areas. All donations from the event will benefit Team Brownsville, a non-profit which directly assists asylum seekers who find themselves in Brownsville, Texas and at the Brownsville/Matamoros international bridges.

The event is organized by US Fish and Wildlife DFP Intern Beatrice Arce, who gained her position through the Hispanic Access Foundation's MANO Project, which places college students into trustworthy agencies and organizations to advance professional development.

A celebrar la Semana de Conservación Latina con un proyecto de Arte en la Montaña

Join Wilderness Workshop, Defiende Nuestra Tierra, and the Aspen Art Museum to celebrate Latino Conservation Week through a photography workshop. During this workshop we will be exploring the interconnectedness between place based conservation and Latino identity, through the lens of our phone cameras.

This is a free, guided and bilingual event. We encourage all participants to come as their full self and celebrate their culture as we dive deep into exploring the translational landscape of Lake Christine, where wildfires affected our day to day life in the Roaring Fork Valley a couple years ago.

To help us plan, please register in advance. Additional information will be sent in your confirmation email.

Este es un evento gratuito, guiado y bilingüe.

Rising Educators - Panel Discussion with Latinx Jackson Hole Community Leaders

Rising Educators, a program for local Latinx high school students interested in outdoor education, was hosted for the first time this summer 2021. Students are trained in CPR and first aid, hands-on outdoor education activities, and other professional skills to help them thrive in their paid summer internship. Students are then paired up with one of four organizations in Jackson, WY for the summer where they provide support for summer camp programs hosted by the organizations. Throughout the summer, Grand Teton National Park and Teton Science Schools staff meet with participants for biweekly professional development nights to build their skill set and create a sense of community among participants. These nights include activities such as panel discussions with local Latinx community leaders, group management techniques, and resume and cover letter workshops. 

This week, Wednesday, July 14th, 2021, Rising Educators will be meeting with Latinx community leaders for a panel discussion to learn more about different career paths and opportunities for the future. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from inspiring Latinx leaders who work for local organizations that support the Latinx community in Jackson Hole, WY, which makes up roughly 25% of the population. 

The program hopes to increase representation of Latinx youth in the outdoor environmental field by providing skills and tool, a supportive community, and career opportunities for local Jackson Hole, WY Latinx youth. The program is a partnership with Grand Teton National Park, Teton Science Schools, the Jackson Hole Children's Museum, Teton County Parks and Recreation, Coombs Outdoors, and the Grand Teton National Park Foundation.

Our DREAMS Scholarship Application

By launching this program, we will provide monetary relief to Dreamers and other partially protected (TPS) or undocumented students. As we’ve seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the most vulnerable communities are undocumented youth. Although the Supreme Court allowed DACA to continue, the Trump administration is still undermining the program. Now more than ever people need support in order to apply for renewal and stay afloat. People still have bills to pay. Our undocumented youth already have limited resources and we want to mitigate that by providing emergency aid funds.

• This is not just for DACA recipients but for any undocumented person. This scholarship will be granted to those that are applying for DACA, TPS, or is undocumented while attending college.

• This is an opportunity to improve lives in a new way we have not done before and this will stengthen the future of our nation.

• By providing monetary help, we are helping individuals gain access to high-quality education. If undocumented people stopped contributing to our economy, we would lose billions.

The deadline to apply to this scholarship is July 20th, 2021. If you have any questions, please email Evelyn at evelyn@hispanicaccess.org.

Evening Bat Conservation Hike

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED **Registration Closes on Thursday, July 22nd,12pm MST**

During this limited in-person hike, Aaron Sidder will lead a discussion on the ecology of bats, where they live, what they do, and why they're important. Aaron will also bring in some tips for making your home/yard/park more bat-friendly as well as identify species bats in real time with an Echo Meter Touch Bat Detector.

Aaron Sidder is an ecologist for Bat Conservation International and a board member of Rocky Mountain Wild. He is an experienced field ecologist whose research has taken him to the Everglades, Southwestern deserts, and the top of the Rocky Mountains.

Bats face numerous threats in Colorado, such as habitat loss, wind energy development, and climate change. In addition, hibernating bats in Colorado may be impacted by white-nose syndrome (WNS), a pathogen that has killed millions of bats in the eastern and midwestern U.S. since 2006. WNS has not been detected in Colorado yet, but is now present in adjacent states. Join Latino Outdoors and Rocky Mountain Wild for a night of bat conservation and how you can help preserve these awesome pollinators.

Evening Bat Conservation Hike

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED **Registration Closes on Thursday, July 22nd,12pm MST**

During this limited in-person hike, Aaron Sidder will lead a discussion on the ecology of bats, where they live, what they do, and why they're important. Aaron will also bring in some tips for making your home/yard/park more bat-friendly as well as identify species bats in real time with an Echo Meter Touch Bat Detector.

Aaron Sidder is an ecologist for Bat Conservation International and a board member of Rocky Mountain Wild. He is an experienced field ecologist whose research has taken him to the Everglades, Southwestern deserts, and the top of the Rocky Mountains.

Bats face numerous threats in Colorado, such as habitat loss, wind energy development, and climate change. In addition, hibernating bats in Colorado may be impacted by white-nose syndrome (WNS), a pathogen that has killed millions of bats in the eastern and midwestern U.S. since 2006. WNS has not been detected in Colorado yet, but is now present in adjacent states. Join Latino Outdoors and Rocky Mountain Wild for a night of bat conservation and how you can help preserve these awesome pollinators.

You will need to bring a small backpack or bag to hold water, a face mask, anti mosquito protection of your choice, layers if necessary, a head lamp, and anything else you might need. We might be venturing off the designated trail, so boots would be advised (no sandals).

Park Equity for All

 Rethinking Park Safety: Promoting Park Equity for All is about reimagining public space and sparking conversations about parks as places where everyone - regardless of income level, housing status, race, immigration status, ability, gender, or identity - can feel safe and supported to connect with nature. When we discuss park equity, we need to rethink what parks mean as a safe place in the community, and what safety looks like in general. Through this event, we will be facilitating discussions and activities that challenge our preconceptions of what parks should look like and who parks should serve. Programming will include a station for youth to imagine and draw their ideal park, a space to connect community members with free mental health resources, speaking engagements from housing and environmental advocates, and culturally-relevant food for the public. Our honorarium will focus on how parks can positively serve and interact with all populations, bringing people together to care for each community's unique needs as nature cares for us. The hope is that the event will prop parks up as places that communities themselves take stewardship of to care for as vectors of joy, rest, and organizing.
