News and Outreach in Spanish

Who we are

News & Outreach in Spanish (NOS) is geared to help researchers, advisors, specialists and program staff reach Spanish-speaking audiences using a variety of dissemination tools, such as radio, print media, translations/adaptations, videos and blogs.

Services NOS offers

NOS invites ANR personnel to take full advantage of the services the unit provides so California's Spanish-speaking communities can benefit from the Division's research, programs and outreach efforts.
