Do you worry about the impact your travel has on the environment and on local communities? Do you enjoy learning about local customs and local environmental conditions when you travel? When you take a trip with Green Edventures, they’ve got you covered. Offering three educational adventures in the spring and summer of 2010, Green Edventures gives you the best of all worlds. All three trips employ local guides, well versed in the local cultures and environmental problems. Furthermore, these trips are carbon neutral through Green Edventures’ partnership with Carbonfund.org.
From frolicking with sea lions, snorkeling in a coral reef, and trekking breathtaking desert vistas in Mexico, to glacier hiking and sea kayaking in Alaska, Green Edventures provides options for different interests. Green Edventures focuses on the three “e” values: education, environment and empowerment to inspire people to become active environmental citizens. On a green edventure, you learn from knowledgeable local guides about pressing environmental issues, like how climate change affects Alaska’s wilderness, overfishing in Baja California, and invasive plant species in Kenai Fjords National Park.
