Outreach is a crucial aspect of the work that RGISC does. Throughout the year we hold a number of fun community events meant to engage the public and increase awareness of pressing environmental issues.
From Earth Day events to Loving Laredo hikes to our social media pages, the Rio Grande International Study Center tries to keep our community engaged and involved.
We believe that when we reach out to the community from adults to young children we are working to further RGISC's mission statement. Our goal is to increase awareness among the community about a variety of issues. It begins with fun events that help people get in touch with nature, and this leads to a deeper understanding about our environment and what needs to be done to maintain it.
Awareness is the first step to promoting real action in the community. Some of the most rewarding work at RGISC is when we are able to teach children about the environmental issues that affect them on a day to day basis.
