Es Mi Parque: Spanish-Speaking Outreach at Maryland State Parks

05/30/2019
By Preservation Maryland

The Es Mi Parque program posts Spanish-speaking Rangers at some of the most utilized public parks and also hosts educational programming and outreach activities.

This summer, the program will again host several family-friendly outreach hubs at some of the most used park by Hispanic visitors, including: Cunningham Falls State Park in Frederick County, Greenbrier State Park in Washington County, Patapsco Valley State Park in Howard County, Point Lookout State Park in St. Mary’s County, Rocky Gap State Park in Allegany County and Sandy Point State Park in Anne Arundel County. These parks have great appeal to the Hispanic community for their family-friendly environments, access to water and large day-use facilities. More than two-thirds of summer visitors to these six parks are of Hispanic descent.
