From 2009 to 2013, Environment for the Americas worked with partners across the U.S. to examine ways to improve Latino visitation to natural areas and participation in science and outdoor experiences. Team Naturaleza in Washington’s Wenatchee River Valley is a result of outreach in that area. With the support from multiple agencies, including U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other non-governmental agencies, the community works together to introduce youth and adults to the Valley’s natural resources.
