Latino Conservation Week: El Futuro de Nuestro Hogar

July 17, 2021 @ 8:00 am - July 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm MDT

Latino Conservation Week celebrates Latino care for, and inheritance of, Utah's sandstone landscapes.

Latino Conservation Week: The Future of Our Home

Latino Conservation Week is from Saturday July 17th through Sunday the 25th. On July 17 head to SUWA.org for a surprise recognizing Latino herencia y querencia for wild Utah and nature on public land. You won’t want to miss this view into the future of our home on planet Earth. Latinos have deep roots and connection to America’s red rock wilderness. Public lands of the Colorado Plateau have a unique significance to Latino, Chicano, Hispanic cultures and community health. We deserve to have our stories told and reflected in the story of America. When we protect wild Utah, we protect Latino culture. Gracias!

Members of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance will also host a game of UTAH SILVESTRE TRIVIA for the public. Please meet us at the Gear Swap at Kearns Library (Kearns, UT), and the Tracy Aviary (Liberty Park, Salt Lake City, UT) for a chance to win Protect Wild Utah merchandise!

Public land fossil fuel extraction significantly harms Latino community health. But Latino querencia for our public lands can bring the permanent protection of America’s red rock wilderness. Will you join Latinos for Utah wilderness?
