Laura F.

This project will save us $5,048 , allowing us to Bring three classrooms on field trips to the San Lorenzo River.

What We Need

  • Specific copy, of up to 1000 words, translated from one language to another of the Organization's choice

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on being able to communicate our message to all people - regardless of language spoken. Without your help, we cannot communicate our message to english language learners. All youth should be able to connect with nature in their backyards and with your help, we will create an additional opportunity for Spanish-speaking youth to connect with the river that runs through the heart of their community.

What We Have In Place

We currently have the activity book we need translated which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have all English text completed and the ability to provide any other information you need.

CWC believes in the power of community involvement. Join us!

Are you able to translate text from English to Spanish? You can translate materials that will allow Spanish speaking elementary students connect to nature, via the river that flows through the heart of their community.
