Costa Rica Mogensen Reserve Fundraiser
Students from Northern Michigan University will talk about the experience and knowledge gained from a recent study abroad trip to Costa Rica. Core topics will include discussions on Ecology, Ecotourism, and partnership with Karen-Mogensen Reserve.
There will be a silent auction of souvenirs from Costa Rica to raise funds to purchase additional land for watershed protection at the Reserve.
The Mogensen Reserve has been a grassroots effort led by several local communities in Costa Rica aiming to protect their watershed. Attracting ecotourists to this site employs local people to work at Mogensen and supports local farmers and craftspeople. NMU students who visited are hoping to help raise public awareness about the site. They are also in the process of developing a student club to form a partnership with the Reserve.
