Defensores de la Cuenca
Connecting people to the watershed, nature, and each other
We work to share knowledge and information with the Latino community on the important role the environment has on our lives, health and well-being - and the impact we have on it.
We create an inviting atmosphere for Latin@/es to make meaningful connections while telling our stories and expressing our culture, faith, and love of nature.
We believe that, with access to the right resources, the Latino community can be empowered by their own abilities and become strong and confident leaders.
Our name means Watershed Defenders. A non-profit dedicated to helping the Latino community connect with the natural world through knowledge, shared experiences, and opportunities to preserve and defend the Chesapeake Bay watershed for a healthier mind, body and soul. We provide an outlet where Latin@s can share their interests, talents, and passion for nature and the environment.
Involucrando la Comunidad
Defensores de la Cuenca works to create a green infrastructure and network that is both inviting and inspiring from the point of view of the Latino community. We work to build strong and resilient communities, to promote a sustainable way of life, to bring prosperity through shared resources and opportunities, and to grow a dedicated group of defenders for the watershed. Through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we all can make an impactful difference.
