Join us for a family friendly Spanish group hike!
We are excited to share that we will be participating in the 2023 Latino Conservation Week!
Friends of Nevada Wilderness organizará una caminata grupal en español que comenzará en Jones-Whites Creek Trailhead, cerca de Galena Visitors Center. ¡Hablaremos sobre Leave No Trace, Wilderness y Oportunidades de conservación en Nevada durante la caminata! Esta hermosa área a las afueras de Reno esta lleno de flores silvestres, tiene mucha sombra de los pinos y el arroyo corre con agua cristalina.
Latino Conservation Week: Disfrutando y Conservando Nuestra Tierra is an initiative of Hispanic Access Foundation. Latino Conservation Week was created to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources.
This year Latino Conservation Week is July 15 – July 23 the events during this week bring the Latino community together on a variety of engaging events from guided hikes and camping trips, to trash clean ups and film screenings, bringing the Latino community together to promote conservation efforts and provide an opportunity to show their support for permanently protecting out land, water, and air.
During this hike there will be educational components about Wilderness, Leave No Trace, and the benefits to stewarding these lands. It will also be a time to enjoy the beautiful landscapes we have so close to Reno and enjoy the company of other Latinos in the outdoors. This beautiful area just outside of Reno is lush with blooming wildflowers, has plenty of shade from the pines, and the creek is rushing with crystal clear water. This hike will be family friendly and guided by Meg Tait our Bilingual Stewardship Coordinator. More details below and an email will be sent out a week before the event. If you are Latino or know of Latinos who might be interested, please spread the word and let’s get everyone disfrutado y conservando nuestra tierra (to enjoy and protect out earth)!
