Latino Conservation Week (#LCW2017) is coming up, and HECHO will be celebrating the weekend of July 21 – 23 in Las Vegas, New Mexico and the surrounding areas with events that are free and open to the public. The three days of activities highlight Latino connections to the outdoors, stewardship of the land, and maintaining generations-old traditions in camping. Please join us and bring your friends and family!
During this week, community, non-profit, faith-based, and government organizations and agencies hold events throughout the country. From hiking and camping to community roundtables and film screenings, these activities promote conservation efforts in their community, and provide an opportunity for Latinos to show their support for permanently protecting our land, water, and air.
Please join us for a morning of fishing fun! This Saturday, Arizona GFD, Coconino County Supervisor Matt Ryan, and HECHO will sponsor a FREE family fishing event at the Cataract Lake in Williams, Arizona. Fishing rods and bait will be provided, but you can also bring your own! See you there!
