Joe Camacho searches for faults in Tennessee during the Summer 2013 REU.

Summer 2013 Geoenvironmental Challenges alumnus and recent Humboldt State University graduate Joe Camacho will soon begin a Hispanic Access Foundation tour promoting Latino engagement in the National Parks.

This July — following up on last year’s trip —
the 2014 Four Stops, One Destination tour
will take seven Latino college students to four
(okay, it’s actually six this year) national parks
to engage Latinos with our nation’s parks and
raise awareness about the need to protect
these treasures from oil and gas development
for future generations.

The students will travel 1,400 miles beginning
at Rocky Mountain National Park, then to
Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado,
continuing to Arches National Park in Utah,
then to Colorado’s Mesa Verde National Park,
to Chaco Culture National Historical Park in
New Mexico and ending at Great Sand Dunes
National Park in Colorado.

The students will be sharing their experiences
through social media (#4stops1destination),
videos and photos. They’ll be virtual tour
guides showing the beauty and grandeur of
each of these parks and educating us all about
what they learned firsthand about the energy
development threats.

To discuss how you can be involved or support
the tour, please contact:
