Environmental education for kids

Support an agro-ecological farm at the cloud forest, focused on conservation and sustainable development with environmental education

The project

The reserve was acquired in 1984 and began working towards the conservation of the cloud forest. Since then, adventure tourism activities had been developed, environmental education programs, organic agriculture, biological surveys and other related activities that support the work plan on the reserve. The volunteer program has been running since 2008. Participants carry out different activities on the reserve and in the local community. The projects and activities are not only done within the reserve, but also, the volunteers take part in activities that promote the social and economic development of the community, along with the help of other organizations.

This organization is a non-lucrative conformed by a group of people with a vast professional experience, engaged with the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. Its mission is to contribute to the maintenance and restoration of natural ecosystems, their resources and biodiversity for future generations through the diffusion of productive activities that are compatible with nature, supporting values of social equity and respect for natural and cultural diversity.
