Explore some of the results of EFTA’s 4-year study examining the barriers to participation in science education by Latino audiences.
Engaging Latino Audiences in Informal Science Education
From 2009 through 2013, Environment for the Americas, National Park Service, and a suite of partners across the United States studied the barriers to Latino participation in informal science education (ISE) programs at natural areas.
Engaging Latino Youth in Natural Resource Careers
EFTA is working with some of the country’s primary land and wildlife management agencies, including U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and state parks to examine the barriers to participation in activities, such as International Migratory Bird Day, by Latino audiences. The results of our work have led us to recognize the importance of hiring staff who are representative of the target audience.
