Descubre el Bosque & Extendiendo Ramas
This Spanish-language strategic communications and grassroots program, supported by the U.S Forest Service, is designed to generate conversations around access and exposure to public lands, health and well-being through nature-based connections, and opportunities to become engaged in natural resource conservation. This initiative seeks to engage Spanish-speaking audiences in the U.S., Latin America, and around the world, through the creation of culturally and linguistically relevant content that is disseminated utilizing social media, digital platforms, traditional media, community events and stakeholder engagement.
Forest Health and Human Health
This program seeks to bring attention and activate communities to the fact that the health of both urban and rural forests impacts population health. The protection and conservation of our forests and green spaces are critical to improving the health of communities, particularly those suffering from health disparities.
This program creates and supports initiatives that generate awareness and inspire action around pollinator conservation and its relationship to healthy ecosystems, food security, and human well-being.
redescubre el Yunque: Puerto Rico
Corazón Latino has partnered in launching the first-ever citizen science program in the El Yunque National Forest (EYNF). This initiative aims to support the implementation of the EYNF Revised Management Plan. Redescubre El Yunque serves as a vehicle to engage communities surrounding EYNF in scientific data collection on the forest, while strengthening bonds with our nation’s only tropical rainforest, while increasing the understanding of the critical role that EYNF plays in environmental and community health.
