GREEN Activities | Student & Leadership Development


Campus Verde is now offering outdoor activities with the main goal to have students visit places of interest in Puerto Rico so that they can increase their appreciation of our beautiful island and the need for conservation practices. The students can select among a variety of activities, including kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, and cycling. Dallas Alston and Jorge Bencosme will coordinate these activities and there will be other leaders for some of the excursions.

Kayaking will primarily take place in La Parguera; the other activities may occur at other locations such as beaches, parks and rivers. For each activity, safety is a primary concern, so there will be no leeway for required equipment for some activities. For instance, helmets must be worn during cycling and life jackets must be work during kayaking. The leaders will also be giving safety tips during the outings. Clothing requirements will vary, but in general we recommend that you protect yourself with clothing or sun screen during sunny activities. Long pants are recommended for hiking.

Important: We will try to point out activities which are strenuous. In any case, you will be getting a lot of exercise, so you should be in reasonably good condition to attend any of the trips.

We will meet on time at 7 am at the parking lot of Isla Magueyes. If someone has problems getting a ride, contact me and I will contact other participants of this event to organize car pooling: philjsanchez@gmail.com

Please note that while Dallas is trying to convince the UPRM administration to support the required "Concession" from DNER for night kayaking, we will change to kayaking EARLY in the morning. The reason for the early time is for SAFETY concerns to avoid too much wind, rain, and the mid-day sun. For instance, the wind often picks up significantly between 10 and 11 am.

(Please note that for large groups, Campus Verde has been contacted by private kayak renters. If you decide to use a private company, just show up and use their kayaks. They have special prices for Campus Verde participants. mundo_planeta@yahoo.com (787 485 6659) and servicios@aventuratepr.com (787 207 3951).

Campus Verde, the General Library, and Filmoteca of UPRM are proud to announce a new series of films that students can see every Tuesday at 10:30 am. The idea is for you to be able to “become informed while relaxing.” (Please note that Campus Verde is not responsible for the content of each movie and it is not our desire for you to believe that the film necessarily represents UPRM Campus Verde's goals and ideals.)

We have selected the series from films which will provide you with INFORMATION for living harmoniously with the planet. However, we cannot control the content of all of the films and we are not trying to be activists; rather we think that you can be part of the solution with everyone becoming aware of the present and planning for the future. Thus, we would want to work within the political system to educate, not alienate. We can make a difference with one individual, within one home, within one community; it does make a difference. Let's try to make the as many drastic changes during the next 100 years as we made during the last 100 years, but in a more rational and sustainable mode.

Please note that if you miss seeing this film through the Campus Verde Eco-Cine, you can see it on your own by visiting the audiovisual center located in the right, back corner of the General Library. Mr. Eric Muñiz is the coordinator for the Audiovisual section, which will maintain a collection of most of the Eco-Cine films.
