Rainforest Project Celebrates 25 Years
Posted 05/04/2018 02:01PM

Environmental news is often negative, emphasizing the destruction and harm that human behavior can have on natural habitats. So, twenty-five years ago, Wendy Welshans started the Rainforest Program at Forman School as a way to show students the positive effects that humans can have on the environment. This project has grown to include research projects and patents and is a signature program at Forman.

Every year, students who participate in the Rainforest Project in Costa Rica offer detailed reports on their activities. Earlier today, the students listed below participated in this year's dissertations in the Jake Cloobeck '16 Theater. The event was live-streamed as well.
