31 days in Panama + 2010-11 school year tropical ecology unit
Thursday, July 8, 2010
We had the fortunate opportunity to meet Lydia Valencia, the education director at the Punta Culebra Marine Exhibition Center. This is a Smithsonian facility dedicated to education. The center is small and modest, but it provides over 25,000 children a year with a chance to experience marine life and tropical ecology.
Take a minute to check out their website. Culebra Island has an interesting history and lots of natural wonders we found worth exploring.
Be sure to take a look at the pics!
