Helping Latino families reconnect with nature
Born in Hidalgo, Mexico, Caballero Garcia immigrated to this country when she was 2 years old and grew up in Petaluma. While enrolled at Santa Rosa Junior College, she accepted a paid internship promoting a nature festival at Muir Woods National Monument. As an 18-year-old, she knew redwood trees existed, but she hadn’t ever seen one. Walking in that forest for the first time was life-changing.
