Hike of the weeeeeeeeek! Stone canyon trail located in the Wildwood Picnic Site, just a few miles up Big Tujunga Rd. It's a difficult hike, but look at those views😍 its a little hard to find at first. Once you pass the ForestService board at the end of the parking lot, head down to the trail by the river. Go on it (going away from the parking lot) till pretty much the end. It's not long until you see a path of rocks. We recommend to continue until you see the next/last river crossing. From here, once you get to the other side, go right, and you're on the trail! We went up, after work, for a little workout and for the views. We only went in about a mile but it was steep! This hike can take you to all the way upto to Mt.Lukens (aacording to ModernHiker that is the highest point in the Los Angeles City Limits) or to Sister Elsie Trail, which would connect you to Rim of the valley trail.... which exits down at La Canada or by Tujunga. Just to get to Mt lukens is 4.5 miles of STEEPNESS. But such nice views♡. Also, we saw a couple people playing in the water. So definitely a great site for summer picnics with the family♡ Although, its NOT accessible by bus 😣😿 this hike is: 1) super close to the valley 2) right by bug tujunga creek :D & 3) will be the location of a celebration + clean up event for the launch of Latino Conservation Week! More details to come, pero like for now, save the date: July 14th 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲 #818hikes #818 #sfv #sanfernandovalley #lanatureforall #latinooutdoors #latinoconservationweek #diversifyoutdoors #stonecanyontrail #angelesnationalforest #ANF #itsallyours #patagonia #forceofnature #vamosoutside #getoutstayout #optoutside #unlikelyhiker

This July, NPCA coordinated a fun LA River Kayaking trip with youth from the Bresee Foundation. Students learned about the River ecosystem along the Sepulveda Basin. The trip was part of #LatinoConservationWeek 2017, a national effort spearheaded by the Hispanic Access Foundation. #tbt #kayaking #getoutdoors
How did we celebrate #LatinoConservationWeek in Washington State? By getting on trails. In partnership with @washingtontrails Association, Latino Outdoors led a week long trail work expedition at Mt Rainier for 9 talented young Latinas from South Seattle. Special shout out to @rei @outdoorresearch @msr @mtrainiernationalpark and @washingtonnationalparkfund for making this dream come true.
I had a great time learning more about the parks I already love 🌿 @texasparkswildlife. It's wonderful to see a room full of people wanting to know more about the outdoors ♡. Thank you @aprilmonterrosa for the invite! Make sure to check out your local @rei store for classes and assistance on what you might need to make your experience the most enjoyable. #tpwd #texasstateparks #latinooutdoors #gooutside #optoutside #pafuera #livethestory #explore #LatinoConservationWeek #LCW2017 #rei #forceofnature #livelife #theammcollection #fitfunand #txlatinoblog #latinablogger #visittexas #texasparks #chicaafuera #Texas
“I think it’s wonderful. I think they try to maintain it. They do the best job they can, obviously. I’ve seen people litter right in front of me here. Two weeks ago, I saw an ice cream truck here and I saw the dad say: “Throw the wrapper into the water” or whatever. And I gave a dad the dirty look and I picked up the plastic and I told my son: “Don’t ever do that. We work hard to keep the beach clean.” What a shame that the dad told the kid: “Put the garbage, throw it there”. And I thought that my vein…and I looked over at the dad like *makes face expression*…Yeah, with my eyes. You know, I’m not trying to start problems but how can you tell your son to throw that on the floor. Like, that don’t make any sense to me... We teach our kids. We take as much garbage as we can. Not just our garbage. Whatever garbage we find. Any plastic, because plastic does not disintegrate. That’s why we never use plastic bags like at 7-11. Because it destroys the Earth. So we come with our bags so we try to grab as much garbage without cutting or hurting ourselves …This is our park… If everybody came up and picked up their garbage when they left, and garbage that is not theirs, this would be spotless, you know? And this is for everybody to enjoy, you know? A place like this, everybody should be able to come here… and be able to see all the beautiful things.” . . To finish out our Latino Conservation Week segment we would like to share this story of a family that has been vising our park for over 30 years with 5 generations. It has been a pleasure to post stories about the diverse communities who use our park. #EncuentraTuParque #FindYourPark #NPS #goparks #optoutside #americasbestidea #nationalparks #usinterior #getoutside #LCW2017 #LatinoConservationWeek #HispanicAccess #Latinos4Conservation #Sandyhooknj #gatewaynps
We want to thank all who attended and participated in making this a successful event! In celebration of Latino Conservation Week 2017, a group of over forty Latinos from Hot Springs volunteered to hike trails on Hot Springs Mountain and walk along Bathhouse Row collecting trash. They also learned about the role they can play in conservation of public lands and National Parks. #EncuentraTuParque #latinoconservationweek #LCW2017 #FindYourPark #HotSpringsNPS #LHIP

“Me encanta venir aquí. Lo que más me acuerdo, una vez que viene para acá cuando, me puse a pescar en las primeras entradas. Saque un flounder así de grande *movimiento de manos alejándose*. Bien grande. Pesaba como 7 libras. Bien exagerao. Vine con mis sobrinas esa vez. Mis sobrinas, las hijas de mi hermana que me trajo a mí. Y ellas se pusieron muy feliz. Cuando yo saque ese pescado. Y me trae muchos recuerdos porque lo llevé a casa para compartir. “¿Donde cogiste ese pescado?” me preguntaron. Ellas lo tienen en el Facebook. Hasta fotos nos dieron. Fue bonito. Lo llevamos a casa a compartirlo. Y mi familia también. Un recuerdo bien bonito de aquí. Entonces quede enamorado de esta playa. Y aquí estoy viniendo”. . . “I love coming here. What I remember the most, one time I came to fish in one of the first entrances. I fished a flounder this big *motion of hands moving away from each other*. Really big. It weighted like seven pounds. It was huge. I came with my nieces that time. My nieces, the daughters of the sister that brought me here for the first time. And they were really happy when I took out that fish. And it brings me a lot of memories because I took it home to share. “Where did you get that fish?” they were asking me. They put it up on the Facebook. There are even pictures of it. It was great. We took it home to share with my family. A beautiful memory from here. And that is when I fell in love with this beach. And I continue coming.” . . Gabriel shared his story with us. He comes from Columbia and has been bringing his family to Sandy Hook for over 30 years. Besides fishing he spends time with his family, sharing food and playing soccer with his grandchildren. All week in honor of Latino Conservation Week we will be posting stories about the diverse communities who use our park. Have a story to share?

Did you know that the unique 'desert rain' smell of the Creosote bush is the result of many volatile oils, but mostly terpene, limonene (citrus), camphor (pines and rosemary), methanol (wood alcohol), and 2-undecanone (spices). Take a moment to stop and smell the desert rain!
Buddy Bison and I catching up on some good reading. This is a great book for kids. It offers fun facts about animals and the park itself. Great summer reading for children. A comprehensive afterword offers a short history on the park and ways that children can get involved with preserving Yellowstone National Park.

This Latino Conservation Week, we are inspired by the next generation of Desert Defenders from the Sierra Club San Gorgonio Chapter. Their voices were essential in the fight to designate our national monuments, and they will continue fighting for their home and their community. Listen to these powerful words from our Desert Defenders rally in Indio. #LCW2017 #latino #conservation #latinoconservationweek #indio #coachellavalley #activist #inspiration #inspirational #rally #sangorgonio #sierraclub #MojaveMonuments #desertdefender #DesertDefenders #monumentsforall

It's #latinoconservationweek !Protégete Community Organizer @sikimira reflects on what this week means to her, "Growing up I was lucky enough to savor my time in the outdoors with my family, even if it was just a quick trip out of Denver. A picnic was almost always guaranteed, followed by a leisurely hike or just relaxing by a nearby river. As I grew older I began to make connections between social and environmental issues, quickly realizing the two are heavily intertwined. Latino Conservation Week provides an opportunity to reflect on how to protect the environment, and in turn, our communities." Share with us your #lcw2017 story!

" [Volunteering] allowed me to be able to see how I can make a difference and give me the opportunity to experience and realize how much life is in the desert and makes me want to do my part to preserve it.

The Latino community's voice has been essential to the conservation fight in the desert, and we could not accomplish all that we have without their support.

"It’s perfect for the kids. The other time we came we stayed only on the beach. But I like this area because it’s comfortable here, less busy. I love the trees, everything is natural. For us is perfect. You don’t have to do nothing. I feel safe, for us it is perfect. It is not expensive to come here. Other parks we have to pay for parking and each person. This is perfect... In our country our beaches are not clean like here. That’s why we teaching our kids to throw garbage in the bag and not the water." . All week in honor of Latino Conservation Week we will be posting stories about the diverse communities who use our park. #EncuentraTuParque #FindYourPark #NPS #goparks #optoutside #americasbestidea #nationalparks #usinterior #getoutside #LCW2017 #LatinoConservationWeek #HispanicAccess #Latinos4Conservation #Sandyhooknj #gatewaynps @nationalparkservice

July 10, 2015, President Barack Obama used his authority under the Antiquities Act to designate the site as Waco Mammoth National Monument, to be managed by the National Park Service in collaboration with the City of Waco and Baylor University. Waco Mammoth NM is one of 129 sites across the country that has been designated a National Monument. These sites are significant because of their historic, prehistoric, or scientific importance. However, until these places are upgraded to National Park designation, some of these wonderful places are in danger of losing their protected status. I urge everyone to go visit one of these sites as soon as possible. Public land is for all of us to enjoy. Here are some pictures of all the educational activities I did while I visited. If President Obama wouldn't have assigned the NM I and others wouldn't have been able to enjoy and learn of this amazing place!
