Ixtlan de Juarez

Students will also have the opportunity to work with residents of Ixtlan de Juarez, a small mountain town, in support of their efforts to maintain environmental values.

In addition to the Colonos y Comuneros and the community work teams in Ixtlan the group will meet with Oaxacan academics who work in this area, with public agency community liaisons and coordinators, with non-governmental agencies such as the World Wildlife Fund and Amigos del Fortin, and with other local people involved in promoting environmental protection through community action.
