2022 began with exciting news:
The resuming of our Ecotour programming!
Friends of the Rainforest sent a group of students and adults from the Mead Montessori School in Knoxville, TN, to the Children's Eternal Rainforest at the end of February - our first Ecotour since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020! Through our Biodiversity and Peace program, the Mead Montessori group stayed in Pocosol Field Station, assisted with meaningful, long-term scientific investigations, pursued their own independent studies, and visited the Arenal Volcano, all guided by our partner, Jeff Norris, from Natural Solutions.
Friends of the Rainforest offers an authentic study-abroad and field research experience in the Children's Eternal Rainforest that incorporates tropical ecology, scientific study, international travel, and the opportunity for students to become engaged in taking action on important conservation issues. Our trips are also available for groups of friends, family, or anyone who wants to visit one of the most incredible places on earth.
