During the 2011-12 winter break 16 students and faculty from UW, Casper College and Laramie County Community College travelled to Ecuador to spend 8 days/7 nights touring by yacht the Galapagos Islands with author and Charles Darwin scholar Greg Estes. Days were spent hiking trails and snorkeling to observe the unique flora and fauna of these islands that are a natural laboratory for the study of Evolution. Following the Galapagos expedition the group spent 3 days hiking and birding in the Bellavista Cloud Forest Preserve in the Andes Mountains near Quito. Planning is already underway for another course in January of 2013. Interested persons should email Scott Seville (email@example.com).
