- Construction on greenhouse
- assembled bamboo support poles for roof
- Canopy tour – zip lines
Below are my notes:
Continued previous construction on the new greenhouse. prepared/aligned bamboo which was then tied on top of the ones already placed in rows. this was necessary for the support of the greenhouse roof. construction of the greenhouse will be beneficial to the production/growing of vegetables that are not suitable for the wet climate. these vegetables will be used around the reserve and if production is large enough could be sold to the community
we were shown the tour guests receive when visiting the reserve. First-hand introduction to the ecotourism her which was a great experience and probably the best way to learn and then maybe improve upon what we saw. gives a better appreciation for all the work done on the reserve without our help.
lacking participation but could have been better if I had properly posed first questions. very excellent insight and growth of the topic/issue.
