Apr 14, 2014|Higher Education| by administrator

Last month, the Nightingale-Bamford School embarked on its biennial Costa Rica Field Studies program. The students participated in a comprehensive study of Costa Rica’s language, history, culture, geology, geography, flora, and fauna before their trip and received the opportunity to put their newfound knowledge to the test. Here are some of the highlights they captured on film.

Nightingale--Poas-Volcano-National-Park       Poas Volcano National Park, where the class hiked to the volcano's crater lagoon.  

Nightingale--La-Paz-Waterfall       Pitstop to La Paz Waterfall 

Nightingale--Cacao-plantation Learning about the chocolate-making process at a Cacao Plantation.

Nightingale--Heliconia             A heliconia plant at the Selva Verde Lodge garden.

Nightingale--Reforestation       Planting almendro (almond) trees at a local farm. The lack of these trees led to the endangerment of the green macaw. By replanting them here, the students contributed to the preservation of the species.
