Update from the trek!

Dear Dragons friends and families,

The group is currently enjoying the third and final night of their trek in the Reserva Natural Miraflor, a cloud forest region populated by small campesino communities mostly involved in coffee production.  They have been meeting with local women’s collectives working in ecotourism and sustainability along the way, and learning about issues in land use and conservation.  This afternoon the students visited a waterfall, and tonight they are staying with families in the community of La Pita.  The group is in good spirits and enjoying this time to come together as a community and connect with the local landscape.

Tomorrow the group will return to the city of Estelí, and will be posting updates before heading into their two week homestay in El Lagartillo.  More soon!
