Peru and Ecuador Field Trip

In June, 2013, 2015 and 2017, Henderson State University groups spent two weeks in Peru and Ecuador. Members of the groups included current HSU biology majors, recent alumni from the biology program, and members of the local community.  Each trip followed a spring class that concentrated on the natural history of the Galapagos Islands and on the history of the Inca Empire.

The trip will be repeated in June 2019. Contact Engman for details.

Here is a link to a great video by Sarah Wolven, highlighting our 2015 trip.
