The local Latino community made a strong showing at Saturday's Latino Conservation Week celebration in Hot Springs National Park, and one of the event's organizers said it may have sparked some long-term interest in the process.
July 26, 2017, Reps. Grace F. Napolitano (D-CA-32) and Carlos Curbelo (R-FL-26) introduced H. Res. 476, to support the inclusion and meaningful engagement of Latinos in environmental protection and conservation efforts.
U.S. Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Dean Heller (R-NV) today introduced a bipartisan resolution with 16 senators that supports the commitment of the Latino community to engage in conservation efforts. The resolution recognizes the contributions of the Latino community to conservation and wildlife protection and urges increased access to public lands for all Americans.
U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement celebrating Latino Conservation Week:
In celebration of Latino Conservation Week, Sequoia National Park will host 20 young Latino adults from Los Angeles, with support from Save the Redwoods League.
