Academia Maria Reina Students Visit the Rain Forest

Academia María Reina in Puerto Rico is one of the schools of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, NY. The students in the Advanced Placement Environmental Sciences courses, and four of their parents, visited the Yunque as part of the course’s field experiences. There they learned about the history and succession that the forest has passed through and its importance in being the only tropical rain forest in American territory. The group visited a variety of waterfalls and climbed Mt. Britton which is  3,000 feet high.
