Celebrate Latinidad Heritage Month and Nature

September 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In honor of Latinidad Heritage Month—commonly known as Hispanic Heritage Month—The Nature Conservancy hosts their Nature Connects webinar that will celebrate and honor Latinidad and Hispanic culture and its long history, contribution, and intersection to the environment and the outdoors. Panelists are Claudia Pineda Tibbs from Latino Outdoors, Dr. Deborah Landau, a conservation ecologist at TNC Maryland/DC, and Pedro Altagracia, a Trustee for TNC New Hampshire. Moderated by Ariana Cano Gomez of TNC Vermont, they will discuss the importance of accessible outdoor spaces, engaging communities, and all the great things the Hispanic/Latinx community provides. Feedback will also be gathered on how TNC can better connect and build long-lasting relationships with the Hispanic/Latinx community through tangible on-the-ground actions.
