World Biomes Teacher Travel

Travel to beautiful Costa Rica with Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium! This trip will immerse teachers in the wild and untamed world of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, visited by only a handful or travelers, and for teachers, a learning experience like no other! Activities include day and night hikes, kayaking, observing and recording wildlife, and birding. During this trip, teachers will learn about rainforest ecology, gain valuable field experience that can be taken back to the classroom, connect science in meaningful ways to the natural world, and develop a lesson or project inspired by their experience.
