Loading from YouTube...

A trip to the Peruvian rain forest is being offered next June 2018. This is a terrific opportunity to experience the incredibly rich ecosystem biodiversity in the amazon rain forest and to experience the culture of indigenous people living along the river. We will stay in 4 uniquely different lodges along the banks of the Amazon River, and participate in a variety of programs including:

1. Appreciation of an extreme variety of fauna and flora through morning boat excursions and night walks in the forest

2. Service experience (painting, planting, carpentry) at a selected Amazon river community

3. Cultural emersion with the Yagua people

4. Science enrichment at a research station with access to a rainforest canopy walk that stretches over ¼ mile

5.Visit with a community shaman to learn how ethnobotanical resources are used to treat disease

6. Visit animal rehabilitation shelters (monkey island and/or manatee preserve)

If you are interested in this exploratory experience, please contact Dr. Jack Sanford, Science Teacher at sanfordj@avonoldfarms.com or visit the trip website at: groups.ecoteach.com/amazon-aof
