Latino Outdoors

Latino OutdoorsIn Latino Outdoors’ (LO) latest blog, Christian La Mont, Yo Cuento Communications Manager, shares his experience on a sunset hike in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. He writes about how outdoor experiences are about adventure y mucho más (and much more). Getting outdoors presents opportunities that grow each other’s understanding, and plant seeds of curiosity and advocacy. Those who join LO for an outing will be bound to leave with more than memories, but also with new friends, more knowledge, and a true sense of empowerment.
