Teaching Resources


Journey to El Yunque

River Education Program is a portal of information about the natural resources of El Yunque National Park and El Toro Wilderness Area. By reporting on what has been learned from the Luquillo LTER research and monitoring in these areas, we hope to increase public awareness of new findings and encourage studies that will help guide management decisions. This website is developed and maintained by Omar Pérez Reyes from the University of Utah and longtime collaborators of the Luquillo LTER.   Journey to El Yunque is an online four-weekbilingual middle school curriculum where students use LUQ data to investigate the effects of Hurricane Hugo and Hurricane Georges on the Luquillo Mountains and consider the long-term implications of increased hurricane activity.
