From Volcanoes to Forest,
Explorations of Earth Science in Costa Rica
— A GeoTrip for Teachers
30 June – 8 July 2005
Join GSA in our Geo-Adventure Series for Educators; From Volcanoes to Forest, Explorations of Earth Science in Costa Rica, among one of the most biodiverse regions of the world.
In a small country like Costa Rica, the formation of over one hundred volcanic peaks is clear evidence of the major role volcanoes have played in the environmental tapestry and conformation of not just the national territory, but also in the adaptations and cycles of nature.
All the five active volcanoes of Costa Rica are covered in this exciting 10-day all-included guided workshop, where participants will experience breathtaking views of enormous craters from their very edges and observe the nocturnal glow of fire and lava as part of this hands-on experience designed to compliment intructors for earth science curriculum and literacy . Included in the program are visits to Iraz˙ and Poas National Parks, as well as a two-day exploration of the Arenal volcano (the country's most active volcanic site) and a visit to the Miravalles Geothermal Energy Plant and Rincˇn de la Vieja National Park.
This workshop has limited spaces and early registration is highly recommended.
