Field Programs

This incredible field course (since 1994) is taught over Spring Break in the Upper Amazon River Basin rainforests of Peru.

Students fly to Lima, then to Iquitos, and then proceed down the Amazon River via boat to four different camps or research areas.

Activities include daily hikes, night hikes, and ascending 120 ft. into the rainforest canopy via the longest canopy walkway in the world. Students have a hands-on rainforest experience complete with bromeliads, toucans, sloths, and the sounds of the night.

All lectures are outdoors!
