Urban NPS Hispanic Outreach and Education

This project aimed to increase the amount and spread of educational resources in Spanish relating to the consequences of urbanization in order to reach the increasing Hispanic population in the Northwest Arkansas region. Urbanization has contributed to non-point source pollution in the Beaver Lake and Illinois River watersheds, and there has been a lack of education to the Hispanic population regarding these issues. This project made improvements to the educational resources aimed at this group including developing and airing a local television show, Asi Asi Just Like That, which focused on stormwater runoff from home lawns and Household Hazardous waste.
