LACE (Latino students, Advancement, Commitment, and Excellence)

August 24th, 2012
Syracuse, NY

The LACE Latino Youth Program was created by Nosotros Radio Inc., “Your Latino Voice” in order to create a community improvement / stewardship project to help people in their neighborhood, attract wildlife, and promote the arts! With funding from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, they successfully created a bird garden in LIPE Art Park in Syracuse filled with benches, bird feeders, and a mural.

As a result, the group traveled to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to showcase their work as well as the NY State Fair to teach about habitat restoration and birds. Check out the following video to learn more about this wonderful project:
