Description

In a little more than a month, America’s National Parks System will celebrate its 100th birthday. Outdoors enthusiasts have a lot to celebrate on the centennial: 376 protected areas covering over 83 million acres. But there's still room for improvement. When you look at the people who recreate in America’s national parks, the demographics don't match the diversity that is so prominent in the United States.   José González is out to change that. He leads an organization called Latino Outdoors, whose mission is to "connect familias and youth with nature, engage and inspire Latino leadership, empower communities to explore and share their stories in defining the Latino Outdoors identity."   More on Latino Outdoors - http://latinooutdoors.org/   20% off at bigagnes.com with the promo-code "meister" at checkout.   Purchase a MtnMeister t-shirt here - https://gumroad.com/l/QiebU
