Now in its 10th year, Latino Outdoors supports a national community of leaders in outdoor recreation, conservation and environmental education. The group is working to ensure the history, heritage and leadership of the Latino community is included in the narrative of who engages in the outdoors, and who’s working to protect it. Latino Outdoors also supports a storytelling platform in which participants share cultural connections and narratives that are often overlooked by the mainstream environmental movement.
Latino Outdoors provides leadership, mentorship, and professional development opportunities to participants and has served more than 21,000 participants in more than 1,000 outdoor adventures. The organization has 31 regional teams in 20 states and is supported by a national network of about 250 volunteers. Click here to donate.
Creating comfort, confidence and community for a life lived outside is what we’re always working toward at Smartwool, and we’re excited to support community organizations that are doing the same. We look forward to working with the Adaptive Sports Association, Colorado Blackpackers, and Latino Outdoors to equip more people to go far and feel good.
