MARTIN, Tenn. – It is not too late to sign up for the University of Tennessee at Martin travel study tour of Ecuador. Participants will explore the small towns and large cities in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador through a travel study tour this August.
The trip will include working with individuals in a small community in the Andes Mountains at a bird reserve in the cloud forest, including reforestation, trail repair, teaching community members life skills and more.
Time will be spent in the capital city Quito, as well as in small towns such as Otavalo (known for their textiles production of traditional South American wall hangings, sweaters and hats) and Cotacachi (famous for its fine leather products).
The group will visit Cotopaxi National Park (which has the highest active volcano in the world with beautiful snowcap peaks) and end the experience in Guayaquil on the coast to visit banana, cacao and rice plantations, as well as the famous fish and open-air food market.
Those who enjoy the outdoors and learning more about the way of life in South America should consider this trip.
This trip is open to UT Martin students, faculty and staff and the community. There are a few spots left, so act now. For more information contact Dr. Dawn Wilkins (firstname.lastname@example.org); Dr. Crag Darroch (email@example.com); or Dr. Sue Byrd (firstname.lastname@example.org).
