DEFENSORES DE LA CUENCA

Connecting people to the watershed, nature, and each other

QUIENES SOMOS

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.

 
 

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.

EXPERIENCES

Defensores creates opportunities for Latin@s to make meaningful connections to nature. We create an inviting atmosphere for Latin@s to tell our stories and express our culture, faith, and love of nature.

EDUCATION

Defensores works to educate the Latino community on the important role the environment has on our lives, our health and well-being and and the impact we have on it.

Then when you know better, do better.”

LEADERSHIP

Defensores believes that with access to the right resources, the Latino community can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to become strong leaders in their own way. We want to be an outlet where Latin@s can share their interests, talents, and passion for nature and the environment. Through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we all can make an impactful difference.
