Recruiting Now for the Forest Online 2019-2020!!

THE TIME IS NOW…  You are encouraged to join our expedition to the Peruvian Amazon in January 2020. In this third version of The Forest Online, we will visit three amazing rainforest locations in our pursuit of telling great stories and exploring environmental conservation and sustainable development on Peru’s Amazon frontier.

In addition to visiting the Amazon, the most biodiverse place on Earth, we will stay in an indigenous community, learn permaculture and sustainable agricultural practices with our partners at Camino Verde, and learn about wildlife science and conservation with our partners at the Las Piedras Amazon Center. Before you go to Peru, we will spend seven weeks preparing through classes in storytelling and international travel. After you return from Peru, you will spend seven weeks working on a team to develop high-impact stories designed to tell our story and to change the world.

To learn more, attend the information session on March 6th in Hill Hall 110 at 4pm. 

This course is application-based. To arrange an interview, email Dr. Scullion (jscullion@mcdaniel.edu) by April 1st with a short email that explains: (a) why you want to participate in the course and (b) what you would bring to the team?

Interviews will take place the week of April 8th so don’t delay!!
