The ACEER Foundation is an expert at organizing customized workshops and field studies in the Peruvian Amazon, offering educational experiences to both faculty and students. ACEER staff will work closely with faculty to create customized workshops that tie in with their curriculum and emphasize hands-on field experience. Most customized workshops are run for 1 to 3 weeks. Semester-long experiences can also be arranged.
Los Amigos is an education and research center, created in partnership with the Amazon Conservation Association and with full funding from the National Geographic Society. The site is adjacent to the Los Amigos Conservation Concession, approximately 4 hours travel time upriver from Puerto Maldonado, Peru. The Los Amigos watershed is remote, pristine wilderness that acts as a biological corridor connecting Manu National Park and the Tambopata Reserved Zone. CICRA, an existing research center created by ACA, lies at the very heart of the largest expanse of virgin rainforest in the world. This complements the facility that includes overnight accommodations for 23, a classroom, laboratory, and an ethnobotanical garden.
