First Eco-Excursion of 2015 a success!

excursion grupoOn the beautiful sunny morning of Jan 14, 27 kids gathered at the Azuero Earth Project office bubbling with excitement for the days activities.  Together with the Scouts of Pedasi, AEP staff organized an outing to a nearby riparian zone … a spot locally known as “La Montaña.” cruzar cuerda2 The walk in the woods was more than just a casual stroll, as the Scouts prepared various activities combining leadership, outdoors skills, and teamwork.  At the culminating activity, a lunch under the shade of fifty year old trees, the staff and and kids spoke about the differences between pasture and forest, and the importance of maintaining trees along riverways.  Overall we recieved wonderful feedback from the Ecopelaos, including one young lady who asked, “Can we go again tomorrow?”
