Durante la Latino Conservation Week (LCW), nos sentamos con nuestro Director de Chispa Maryland, Ramón Palencia-Calvo, para conversar sobre su pasión por la naturaleza y nuestra participación en LCW este año.
Latino Conservation Week se celebra este año entre el 14 y el 21 de Julio y es un evento anual nacional organizado por el Hispanic Access Foundation.

Do you know a local Maryland Environmental Hero?
Once again, we will be honoring visionary work as we present our annual President Theodore Roosevelt Award! If a group or individual you know is doing great things to protect Maryland’s communities and natural places, with an eye towards both today and the future, please make sure you nominate them.
Formally, the award criteria states; “In recognition of the individual, group or organization whom through a specific action, event or body of work will leave a positive conservation legacy that mirrors the ethos of President Theodore R. Roosevelt.”
The winner will be recognized at a formal, public event hosted by the Maryland League of Conservation Voters Education Fund.
We encourage you to scour your areas of interest for worthy individuals, groups or formal organizations that you believe reflect this positive conservation ethos.
Thank you in advance for your efforts,
Chuck Porcari, Interim Executive Director
