Our Favorite Things

We are very excited to participate in the EECapacity Project in collaboration with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

This Professional Learning Community (PLC) is exploring approaches used by conservation NGOs, faith-based groups, urban community outreach organizations, zoos, community arts organizations, National Parks, and other recreation and education organizations to engage the growing Latino/Hispanic population in environmental learning experiences.

For Show and Tell, we were asked to share our favorite resource related to engaging Latino/Hispanic audiences.

Our favorite resource is a little round ball of blue glass…

Nuestro recurso favorito es una pequeña bola redonda de cristal azul …
