In this virtual field trip, we will explore the magical páramo ecosystem and the stunning mountain landscapes found just beyond the capital city of Bogotá. 

    Students will see what it’s like to walk among towering, furry, sunflower-like plants that capture the mist and rain, ultimately providing water for city residents downstream. And they’ll see moss that can hold 40 times its weight in water—it’s true! They’ll also learn about the incredible wildlife in the area including spectacled bears, tapirs, jaguars, and Andean condors. Along the way, students will explore where water comes from, how nature works to store and filter water, and how they can help protect water in their hometown.
