Ever moved to a new city and experienced how disorienting it can be?  Now imagine you’re in a new country with a new language and everything is different.

ECOSS’ New Arrivals Program helps immigrants and refugees bridge the knowledge and cultural gaps they face in their new home.

Bhutanese New Arrivals participants spoke with ECOSS’ Allan Kafley about seeing the source of their drinking water on a Cedar River Watershed tour.

By hiring within the communities we serve, we reach people in their own language,and in a culturally relevant way to introduce them to healthy fishing practices, water quality issues and how to be good stewards.

This program is generously supported by the Satterberg Foundation.
