OUR PUBLIC LANDS.
Nuestra cultura vive aquí.
Welcome to Nuestra Tierra!
Public lands represent the best of America. In the Southwest, our public landscapes and people represent an oasis of authentic, land-based culture with direct and unbroken generational ties going back thousands of years. Across the country, the value of public lands simply can't be measured in profit, nor can their history and importance be written in one history book. For Latino and Hispanic communities across America, our roots are many - our people are multicultural, multinational, and multilingual - and our public lands set the stage for the stories of our past and future. The Nuestra Tierra Conservation Project, a project of the New Mexico Wildlife Federation, aims to tell the stories of Latino & Hispanic communities in New Mexico and across America to help inspire the next generation of conservation leaders.
On the fourth episode of the Nuestra Tierra Conservation Podcast, we delve into the outdoor experiences of Latinx border communities, how those outdoor experiences shape Latinx views on environmentalism and conservation, and the need to reauthorize and renew the Land & Water Conservation Fund and its importance to Latinx and immigrant communities.
On this episode of the Nuestra Tierra Podcast we talk to a group of outdoor recreationists who aren't just building brands and businesses, they're building communities. Whether you mountain bike, fish, or hunt, you have to tune to see what these guys are doing.
We sit down and talk to a group of Chingonas across the United States who are kicking ass in the conservation movement, environmental and conservation policy, and the outdoor recreation industry.
