Our 7/8 class at Monteverde Friends School is raising money for a class field trip to Playa Grande! We will explore the Gold Coast's first nature reserve & learn first-hand the history of conservation in Costa Rica. Contribute to our trip today!

We are the 7/8 Class of Monteverde Friends School in Costa Rica, and we are raising money to fund our annual educational field trip. This year we are going to the Playa Grande Nature Reserve. It will be an opportunity to explore one of the world's most rare biomes (a tropical dry forest that is surrounded by mangroves); examine our individual, local, and global water consumption habits; and study the social impacts of eco-tourism in this area. 

On our three-day field trip we will canoe up the beautiful Tamarindo Estuary that is embedded among the mangroves and surrounded by over 200 species of birds. We will have the chance to travel with the founder of the nature conservancy and hear first-hand accounts of the trials and tribulation that he and this town faced in order to preserve this pristine land. Additionally, we will pariticipate in conservation efforts that are extremely important in helping to keep Playa Grande's ecosystem clean and pure.  


Over the past 6 months our class has organized bake sales, movie nights, and holiday dances to raise money for our trip. We have raised just over $1000 and need just $500 more to make our trip a reality.

Please consider making a donation today. We deeply appreciate any contribution you can offer!

¡Muchas gracias!
