The Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve Environmental Education Program began educating students in 1990 in regional schools where it had influence. Over the years, this program has consolidated its content and geographical reach.
Currently, our work impacts 12 schools in the upper and middle sections of the Bell Bird Biological Corridor. Students receive environmental education workshops from first through sixth grades at their elementary schools. They also enjoy educational guided tours to the Monteverde Reserve with their teachers, tutors, and family members. During these tours, participants learn about the cloud forest’s biodiversity and the relationships between its inhabitants.
Among our strategic allies in the community are local government institutions and conservation organizations. Actively participating committees share tasks, which maximizes human and financial resources. This support allows us to hold ecological contests, vacation programs, environmental fairs, clean-up and reforestation campaigns, and many other environmental education activities.
