La Naturaleza is located on the major highway (CA 5) which connects San Pedro Sula with Tegucigalpa.

La Naturaleza Environmental Education Center seeks to create environmental awareness through educational conferences, movies, and the natural history museum. Procedures from the center go toward environmental protection initiatives in the local community. Operated by Proyecto Aldea Global, La Naturaleza employs 24 people full time from the local community. The organization uses paid and volunteer staff from local indigenous Lenca villages to carry out its ministries of care for creation and poverty alleviation.
