Hands on Experience
CARES21 staff are currently involved in tow large restoration projects that we invite students and faculty to come learn, assist, and even help direct along side of us.
FARM restoration to native habitat:
CARES21 Staff are currently managing a 160 acre farm that is adjacent to our campus making CARES21 one of the largest research stations in Costa Rica! Originally the farm was planted with roughly 60 acres of coffee, some of which still remains, and 60 acres of trees for harvesting. Efforts are currently being made to restore the original habitat and to introduce agricultural practices that are environmentally friendly. It is a huge living classroom. Come and learn with us.
The CARES21 staff are also leading the efforts to clean up Central America's most contaminated watershed using community science and education and a minimum of economic input not only because it is economically sustainable but because it can be easily reproduced across many communities, and even other watersheds across the country and region. You can learn more about our efforts here: www.limpiemoselriotarcoles.org. Come learn with us along with your students how to create hands on community action through science.
