Buck Banks in Tarrazu, Costa Rica
Associate Professor Buck Banks (Environmental Science) is in Costa Rica this month to conduct further research into sustainable coffee production.
The rains have begun in earnest here in the Los Santos area (so named for the "saint" names of the towns - e.g., San Marcos, Santa Maria, San Lorenzo, etc.)! We have been treated to some spectacular thunder & lightning storms on a few afternoons (current one included) this week. Luckily we're doing most of our fieldwork in the mornings - but occasionally we have been caught in the downpour!
