Educational Ecotour Set for Peru

The nonprofit American Botanical Council (ABC) has announced its annual "Pharmacy from the Rainforest" Botanical Medicine Workshop and Ecotour, which will take place in Amazonian Peru and the Andes Mountains, October 7-17.

The 2010 ABC-ACEER Botanical Medicine Workshop will take place in various locations in Amazonian Peru and the Andes, including the famous mountaintop "lost city" of Machu Picchu, declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations and often referred to as one of the new "Seven Wonders of the World."

This year's adventure also features a special optional extension from October 16-19 to the Wayqecha Research Station and the Manu Cloud Forest Canopy Walkway, the only canopy walkway system in the cloud forests of the Andes.

The cost of the main trip is $3,890, which includes domestic airfare within Peru, lodging, meals, ground transportation, baggage handling, and workshops, and excludes the cost of roundtrip airfare to Lima, Peru. The cost of the extension trip is $400.

The full itinerary and registration forms are available on the ABC website at www.herbalgram.org.
