LCW Ponte Las Pilas Latinx Enviros Happy Hour

Many times, underrepresented enviro and conservationist work are the only ones in the room, and tend to work in silos.  The goal of this event is to get us all together, in a social setting, so we can create synergetic momentum towards the engagement of public lands and waters.  Many times we meet in larger settings and our voices are drowned out; this is an opportunity to meet up and make a plan to work collectively for the purposes of making our community better and collaborating with the goal of uplifting us all. Come hang out and enjoy an amazing DJ spinning CumbiaHouse music, have a cold drink from a Latina owned local brewery, munch on some amazing tacos and visualize our collective future with like minded individuals.   Big shout out to our friends and supporters!

Additional Details

What's TIERRA ARMØN?

TIERRA ARMØN is a social entrepreneurship project created by Alejandro Valdés aka outlier.mp3. The purpose of TIERRA ARMØN is to encourage active community participation, while also hosting very fun events including concerts, dance meetups, wellness workshops, comedy shows, and more!

 

Who's outlier.mp3?

outlier.mp3 is the artist moniker of Alejandro Valdés, a 24 y/o Bolivian + Chilean American multidisciplinary artist and academic. He has performed in the USA, Costa Rica, Bolivia, and Panama. He won the 2022 Electric Forest Music + Arts Festival Prize Cart Music Producer Remix Contest, has DJd for clubs/parties all over Washington DC including Flash + Twelve After Twelve + DC Bike Party, is an active dancer with the DMV Shuffle Circle, and recently DJd at 2023 Electric Forest as part of a renegade stage hosted by Sweet Sounds Collective. outlier.mp3 loves graphic design as well, and designed a piece for Pigeons and Planes (a subsidiary of Complex) in March 2022 that was used in their Spotify + Soundcloud playlists. He's won his fair share of academic awards and has been involved in all sorts of STEM research, but those aren't as fun as his artistic accomplishments! :) Here's his LinkedIn if you're curious, though:

https://www.linkedin.com/in/outlierdotmp3/

 

What's DC Bike Party?

DC Bike Party is a monthly party organized entirely by volunteers. During the summer months, there's an average of 1500 riders. This is the 11th birthday of DC Bike Party, and this month's theme is a Jungle Circus. The DC Bike Party team is also celebrating the life of Dzhoy Zuckerman, a wonderful volunteer with DCBP who passed away a week ago. The flyer was designed by outlier.mp3, and the Lead Planner for this month's ride is Alejandro Valdés. More info:

Speakers include leading California EV experts: 

Russell Contreras, Senior Race and Justice Reporter, Axios Latino

Rocio Flores, Chief Social Impact Officer, USC Credit Union

Greg Sarvas, Electric Transportation Programs, LADWP

This series of 1:1 conversations, presented by Natalia Vásquez of Heart in Brain Studios focuses on traditional medicine, the arts, and environmental care. It is generously funded by the Hispanic Access Foundation and is part of the 10th Anniversary celebrations of Latino Conservation Week.

Niki Lopez Afro-Latina, Lesbian interdisciplinary visual artist, curator, social practitioner and award-winning designer. Known for her vibrant color palette, avant-garde exhibitions, masks, and a collection of works dealing with traumas and healing through the arts inspiring the creation of the transformative arts movement "What’s Your Elephant®" - which uses the arts to address the unspoken. 

Lopez's recent mixed-media reliefs incorporate masks and mask elements exemplifying components of her meditative journey towards Afrocentric spirituality, self-discovery, reflection, healing, restoration, and social justice. Exploring various media, intuitive mark-making, and free-flowing strokes, her work evokes a sense of movement, and energy. 

Lopez's contributions to the arts were recognized with a 2021 Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellow nomination and the 2020 Broward County’s Arts & Culture Visionaries Award by ArtServe. Her philanthropic actions include donating works to support various causes such as the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center, HRC-Human Rights Campaign, and Equality Florida.

Natalia works as a visual artist and holistic practitioner. In 2017 she created Heart in Brain Studios as a nurturing space to explore internal landscapes through the visual arts and energy-based practices. Natalia serves as the interpreter for the Hispanic Access Foundation and is a trainer for the Goldie Hawn Foundation's MindUP Life program.

Niki Lopez Afro-Latina, artista visual interdisciplinaria lesbiana, curadora, practicante social y diseñadora premiada. Conocida por su paleta de colores vibrantes, exhibiciones de vanguardia, máscaras y una colección de obras sobre los traumas y la curación a través de las artes que inspiraron la creación del movimiento artístico transformador "What's Your Elephant®", que utiliza las artes para enfrentar lo que “no se puede hablar.”

Los relieves de medios mixtos recientes de López incorporan máscaras y elementos de máscaras que ejemplifican componentes de su viaje meditativo hacia la espiritualidad Afro-céntrica, el autodescubrimiento, la reflexión, la curación, la restauración y la justicia social. Explorando varios medios, marcas intuitivas y trazos fluidos, su trabajo evoca una sensación de movimiento y energía.

Las contribuciones de López a las artes fueron reconocidas con una nominación a ser la  ‘Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellow’ en el 2021 y con el premio en el 2020 de ‘Broward County's Arts & Culture Visionaries Award’ de ArtServe.

Daniel Correa immigrated to the United States from Colombia when he was a kid with his family. He grew up in New Jersey for the majority of his life. Ever since he was a kid, Daniel has always been fascinated by the natural world and the outdoors; in part thanks to his parents taking him to the local urban parks and family camping trips. His curiosity and interest in nature led him to a B.A. in Environmental Science with a minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Daniel has used his college degree, and his passion for the environment to pursue a career in wetland habitat restoration and environmental education. He has worked on various restoration and conservation projects in the East and West Coast with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Americorps, and most recently with the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District.

Natalia works as a visual artist and holistic practitioner. In 2017 she created Heart in Brain Studios as a nurturing space to explore internal landscapes through the visual arts and energy-based practices.

Please, plan accordingly and wear comfortable shoes, cool clothes, a hat, and sunscreen. 

LUNCH – After the hike, there will be a break for lunch. Participants can bring their own lunch and are welcome to eat on the lawn at the nature center or explore the rest of the park. Food concessions are offered at the Zion Lodge, or in Springdale.

Nonnative/Invasive Plant Removal

Join Travis County Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP) in celebrating the 10th anniversary of Latino Conservation Week (July 15 – 23) on Saturday, July 22nd from 8:30 – 11am to remove invasive plants. Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation and is a way to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources.

The Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP) is one of the nation’s largest urban preserves, covering more than 33,000 acres in Central Texas. It protects habitat for endangered and species of concern. This workday will consist of nonnative plant removal, which allows for native trees and other plants that wildlife depends on to thrive. Learn more about the BCP here: https://www.traviscountytx.gov/tnr/nr/bcp

For this activity, we'll be hand-pulling vinca, also known as periwinkle. While this plant is typically used commercially in yards, overgrowth of this species has inhibited other native foliage and trees to grow. This activity will be mostly sitting in the shade, hand or tool pulling at a leisurely pace. We will meet at Travis County BCP’s Snowden House (https://goo.gl/maps/y5Xk3rKzT6qX9MXF7) and walk to the project site about 1 mile away.

Please wear long pants, closed toed shoes, and bring sun protection, any allergy medication you may need and plenty of water.

Platica and Hike: Braiding Environmentalism, Mass Incarceration, and Justice

The purpose is to braid the intersections of Environmentalism and Mass Criminalization while Building People Power. The purpose of this workshop is to focus on the philosophical underpinnings and practices that are necessary towards uplifting community leadership, civic engagement, and land conservation efforts. This workshop will spark conversations and dialogues about our cultural inheritance of being in relationship with nature and with each other. Furthermore, this workshop will provide a historical context on how the first recorded acts of environmental racism were acts of classism and racism, and how that ideology has persisted in this western colonial society that continues to keep us separated. This can be seen most notably through the racist and transactional policies that have degraded the central valley, and have also served to funnel many people of color into the prison industrial complex ie: The expansion of the prison economy through “Prison Alley”. Participants will  leave with a shared understanding of the importance of civic engagement, policy advocacy that centers our humanization, healing, and upward mobility.

Caring for Nason Creek - Cuidando el Arroyo Nason

Caring for Nason Creek | Cuidando el Arroyo Nason | Chelan-Douglas Land Trust (cdlandtrust.org)

Latino Conservation Week provides opportunities for Latinos and all of our community to show their support for permanently protecting our land, water, and air. To honor this movement CDLT is hosting a fun morning at Nason Creek to 1) remove the invasive Spotted Knapweed, 2) enjoy a short walk together as we learn about the fish habitat restoration projects, and 3) have a small picnic near the water. Snacks will be provided by CDLT.

Every year, endangered Spring Chinook and threatened steelhead migrate up hundreds of miles of river, making their way to Nason Creek. Nason Creek is 49 minutes from Wenatchee near Lake Wenatchee.

Kids are welcome to attend. Spotted Knapweed is easy to remove. This plant is seeding right now so all plants will be bagged and thrown away.

This event is limited to 8 participants. More information will be emailed to participants after registration.

Please contact Elisa for more information or if you have any questions elisa@cdlandtrust.org.

La Semana de la Conservación Latina brinda oportunidades para que los latinos y toda la comunidad muestren su apoyo a la protección permanente de nuestra tierra, agua y aire. Para honrar este movimiento, CDLT está organizando una mañana divertida en el Arroyo Nason para 1) eliminar una hierba mala invasiva, 2) disfrutar de una caminata corta juntos mientras aprendemos sobre los proyectos de restauración del hábitat de los peces y 3) tener un pequeño picnic cerca del arroyo. CDLT proporcionará refrigerios.

Cada año, el Spring Chinook en peligro de extinción y la trucha arcoíris amenazada migran cientos de millas de río arriba y se dirigen a el Arroyo Nason que está a 49 minutos de Wenatchee, cerca del Lago Wenatchee.

Los niños/jóvenes son bienvenidos a asistir. La mala hierba es fácil de quitar. Esta planta está sembrando en este momento, todas las plantas serán embolsadas y desechadas.

Este evento está limitado a 8 participantes. Se enviará más información por correo electrónico a los participantes después del registro.
