Travel to Costa Rica


with Nadine Marchand

Calendar Apr 19, 2024 at 1:30 pm


In January Nadine Marchand & Deb Stahler went on a 2-week Road Scholar tour of Costa Rica. You can take the same trip (maybe not exactly the same!) without leaving Farmington by joining the class.  From the Caribbean coast to the Pacific coast, Costa Rica is a land of multiple ecosystems. They visited five areas of the country exploring the natural wonders. They also enjoyed numerous presentations by experts in their fields. This travelogue will include many photos of the country and also some of the information about the country's social & political structure that was shared with the group.

Location: Ed Ctr, rm 114

Nadine loves to travel; Deb not so much. But both thoroughly enjoyed the country of Costa Rica with its diverse flora and fauna.
