NATURALEZA AHORA! LATINO ENGAGEMENT INITIATIVE 

The Straub Environmental Center is launching “Naturaleza Ahora!” a new initiative designed to help Latino students access the outdoors and learn about natural science. It will be one of the most important community-based efforts the Center has embarked upon to date.

This multi-year project will identify the needs and priorities of Latino students and their families, develop outdoor programs that are responsive to those needs, and find innovative ways of reaching out to the Hispanic/Latino members of our community. Our goal is to double the number of Latino students who participate in outdoor education over the next year and help them develop social, academic and workforce readiness skills through natural science education . . . in nature.

The Straub Environmental Center is currently seeking bilingual educators, high school students, and college students who are interested in outdoor education and would like to participate on our Latino Engagement Team, as a volunteer at one of our upcoming outreach events, or as an intern.

We are also launching a crowdfunding campaign to support this initiative.

Visit http://straubenvironmentalcenter.org/how-to-help/ to make a contribution today. All donations received through September 30 will directly support Naturaleza Ahora!
