A local conservation organization wants to be sure that everyone in the Roaring Fork Valley has a voice in public lands issues. Wilderness Workshop has announced a new outreach program called “Defiende Nuestra Tierra,” which translates to Defend Our Land. It’s goal is to mobilize the Latino community around public lands advocacy. Elizabeth Stewart-Severy spoke with Alicia Zeringue, community organizer for Wilderness Workshop.
The kickoff party for Defiende Nuestra Tierra is this Saturday from one to three at Sayre Park in Glenwood Springs.
