Our Monteverde Roots Programs meet you where you are. We match up your interests, skills, time frame and budget, and we customize programs that will work for you and for the park. Together we can create personalized and mutually impactful projects!
Only have a few hours but want to offer a helping hand? Join us for Community Service in the Park (see below).
Want an immersive educational/cultural experience so you can make a difference? See EcoPaz Internships & Education (below).
"Monteverde Roots represents the interchange of people and nature that anchor and provide the lifeline for the park; like the roots of a plant, we hope this interchange can gather and deliver what we need to create new ideas, energy, and actions for a thriving community."
Liz Wilson, co-founder
