Adventures in Science

AnthroExplorers: Andes and Amazonia (Grades 4 & 5)

December 6, 2015 - December 20, 2015


Catarata El Encanto

Catarata El Encanto, which means the enchanted waterfall, plunges over the edge of the Huanchaca Plateau, a massive sandstone bluff in eastern Bolivia. This stream ultimately feeds into the Amazon, the largest drainage system in the world. Noel Kempff Mercado National Park, where this waterfall is located, preserves habitats ranging from dry savannahs and woodlands on the plateau to wet tropical forests below. More than 240 species of fish live in the park, many of them found nowhere else.

Imagine living on the side of a steep mountain or surrounded by rainforest. What would your life be like? Experience the Andes mountains and Amazon River basin of South America as you explore the native food, treasured items, and unique challenges faced there.
