The Wildlands Conservancy invites Hispanic community leaders from various organizations for dinner and a tour of Whitewater Preserve to celebrate Hispanic Heritage, and learn about access problems facing the Latino community in Sand to Snow National Monument. This event will help educate and empower Latino community leaders to develop and advocate for equitable solutions.

The discussion will focus on current federal management policies in Whitewater Canyon (outside the Preserve) that inadvertently disadvantage the Latino community, and how Latino leaders can educate and activate their communities, and partner with land managers, to work for improved access.

Dinner will be provided.

Saturday, October 29

Attendance by invitation only.
