01 – Latino Outdoors – Vamos Outdoors – Kayak Outing
July 2, 2023 @ 09:00Free
Latino Outdoors inspires, connects, and engages Latino communities in the outdoors and embrace cultura y familia as part of the outdoor narrative, ensuring our history, heritage, and leadership are valued and represented.
Vamos Outdoors (Let’s Go Outdoors)
This program is centered on fostering outdoor engagement by Latine and other communities through group outings, outdoor activities in collaboration with other organizations, initiatives that encourage independent outdoor participation, and best practices in outdoor engagement shared through LO’s online communications channels.
Latino Outdoors has partnered with Canton Kayak Club (CKC) to expand the the number of kayak activities offered. CKC’s Outreach Program allows a CKC rescue-trained Latino Outdoors member to lead a group outing of Outdoor Afro members using CKC kayaks, paddles and life jackets. Latino Outdoor members gain water access and more experience paddling, along with an awareness of the CKC organization and membership as a community resource.
