Costa Rica: Sustainable Tropical Ecosystems
Winter Term Dates: January 6-19, 2013
The course will provide students the opportunity to experience another culture and acquire a comprehension of the relationship between Costa Rica's agricultural development and the sustainability of its tropical ecosystems. Visits to small and large agricultural production facilities will be interfaced with visits to Costa Rica's natural ecosystems, including the Arenal volcano and Monte Verde tropical rainforests. The latter includes an option to view the rainforest from literally a birds eye view via a suspended zip line.
