The Amazon Library
hasn’t held a field trip since 2013, though we would like to have this be a yearly event. This year Fernando, our library director, found the finances to make it happen and Explorama hosted our trip to the ACTS Canopy Walkway.
The students with the highest participation at either of the libraries were selected to go. Fifteen students from the main branch and seven students from Sapo Playa, along with library staff, participated in the excursion. This was the first time on the Napo River and to the Canopy Walkway for any of the students. For them the trip was quite an educational experience, allowing them to see their rainforest home from a different perspective and to learn about the plants and animals that live there.
