TVHS Eco-Fieldtrip to Costa Rica
Organized by: Amanda Barth
This fundraiser is to help high school students from Tanque Verde High School, Tucson, AZ, raise money for the adventure of a lifetime. It will certainly be the first time many of us will be leaving the country, experiencing a jungle habitat, and being immersed in a culture that speaks a completely different language.
Every dime that we raise will go towards our collective travel costs to and around Costa Rica during the summer of 2015. We will travel around the country, exploring the jungle habitat, a biological reserve, an active volcano, and interacting with local communities through community volunteering projects. We will learn about Costa Rican environmental history, culture (e.g. cooking and dance classes), and conservation efforts. Students and parent chaperones from Tanque Verde High School are excited about their participation in this experience and further applying this to their education in science. Any help that we receive will certainly benefit their appreciation of conservation, international collaboration, and interest in continued travel.
Pura vida! Muchas gracias!
