Director of Latino Outdoors, José González, is sharing his experiences at several fun events today and tomorrow

What do cultura, Latino community and the outdoors have in common?

All three topics intersect perfectly this Thursday and Friday at the University of Wyoming under the guidance of José González.

José is the Founder and Director of Latino Outdoors, an organization dedicated to expanding outdoor and natural-science opportunities for Latinos through education and community initiatives.

After teaching for several years in California public schools, José worked as a coordinator and instructor in outdoor education programs at National Hispanic University and San Jose State University. He has a strong interest in conservation, the environment, and the arts. His vibrant illustrations can be seen at
