American Latino Expedition
A National Call For Bloggers!
The American Latino Heritage Fund of the National Park Foundation has partnered with ARAMARK Parks and Destinations and REI to launch the @American_Latino Expedition to engage diverse audiences to visit, explore and enjoy America’s national parks. Together, we are issuing a national call for bloggers to apply for the opportunity to participate in a national park adventure. The Expedition focuses on education, park stewardship, outdoor recreation and exploration, all the while highlighting historic American Latino contributions at each site.
The @American_Latino Expedition will feature three national parks:
- Olympic National Park (Washington)
- Mesa Verde National Park (Colorado)
- Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (Arizona/Utah)
Expenses, including air travel, lodging and most on-site tour and excursion fees will be covered by ALHF and Expedition partners, ARAMARK Parks and Destinations and REI.
The groups selected will serve as ALHF Ambassadors to our national parks by participating in social media activities that bring these parks to all communities across the country. As part of the experience, bloggers selected to participate will be asked to:
- Blog about their experiences on their personal websites and share content on ALHF.org and on our partners' websites.
- Tweet, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube their entire experience! Once bloggers are selected and announced, we will work with each group to share all aspects of their trip and expedition experience with followers and friends on social media.
- Participate in media interviews regarding the @American_LatinoExpedition for regional and national audiences.
Travel To One Of These National Parks!
WHO CAN APPLY: Friends, groups, families.
