Our First Field Trip Outside of Potrero!

What a fun day! Thanks to a few donations from local businesses, we were able to rent a bus and drive to Las Pumas Rescue Center! We saw pumas, jaguars, toucans, and more! The children had a great time. We learned about the importance of preserving wild life, enjoyed a typical Costa Rican lunch of beans and rice with chicken, and rode 2 hours each way on a bus with all our friends from the community. Forty Three people got to come along, including eight parents who were a huge help! Abriendo Mentes had volunteer teachers Morgen, Callan, and Maggie to help us organize this trip, and we look forward to doing excursions like this again in the future! Thanks to all those who contributed with donations; often in the form of discounted rates, free admission, chaperoning, fruit for the animals at the rescue, as well as time and devotion. It was a memorable experience for all!
