The mission of Latino Outdoors is to encourage families to discover outdoor spaces by reducing barriers that limit asscess, such as language or lack of transportation, The group is working to foster a deep connection with nature and environmental stewardship through a series of state park visits and overnight camping trips.
“Latino Outdoors is very excited to be the recipient of a CA State Park Foundation’s – Park Enrichment Grant. Our plan is to use these funds to connect underserved youth and families who reside in L.A. county with the wonders of nature that can only be found in our nearby State Parks. Making connections between youth and families and parks will no doubt create new awareness, new appreciation and hopefully new excitement for the outdoors.”
