Community Partner: Eye on the Rainforest
This program will work alongside Eye on the Rainforest: Las Casas de la Selva, in Patillas, Puerto Rico. The land known as Las Casas de la Selva was established in 1983 and is the home of Tropic Ventures Sustainable Forestry & Rainforest Enrichment Project. Their mission is “to research and demonstrate the economic use of rainforest land using methods that do not destroy the rainforest ecology.” The Tropic Ventures Sustainable Forestry Project relies on the work of dedicated volunteers and for 35 years they have hosted volunteers from all over the world. Their motto is “learning by doing."
