POLITICO: Hispanic Group Promotes Conservation with New Tour

The Hispanic Access Foundation will launch a "Four Stops, One Destination" tour today in which seven Latino college students visit national parks in the West for nine days to promote conservation and urge against oil and gas development. “If we don’t have a balanced approach to energy development, future generations will not be able to enjoy the beauty of these parks as they stand today. And it will be that much more difficult to attract Latinos, and other communities for that matter, to these parks,” said Maite Arce, HAF’s president and CEO. The tour is HAF’s latest effort to boost conservation awareness in the Hispanic community. More info:http://bit.ly/1oKOvZi
