Sheema Hai and Albert Arevalo – Engaging Diverse Audiences in Parks and Outdoor Recreation
According to a recent National Park report, Non-Hispanic white visitors make up the largest demographic of visitors to national parks. This trend is mirrored for parks and recreation agencies around the country as many struggle to attract a more diverse audience. This session will explore how agencies might address this challenge.
Sheema Hai, Cultural Competence and Inclusion Advocate, and Albert Arevalo, Program Coordinator for Latino Outdoors, will examine misconceptions and stereotypes, current trends, and insights into the work being done to make outdoor recreation more inclusive.
