Canopy in the Clouds is reviewed in the January 2012 edition of the American Biology Teacher. According to the article, written by life science teacher Marisa Castronova,
“Today’s student is very technologically savvy, yearning to learn at his or her own pace. This resource satisfies that need while exposing the student to an otherwise hidden world. Get ready, pack your bags, and visit “Canopy in the Clouds” to plan your itin- erary. Your virtual field trip is just one click away. I highly recommend “Canopy in the Clouds” for grades 6–12, although its con- tent and lesson plans can be modified for use by other grades. Tutorial videos are also provided. For those without a high-speed Internet connection, the project team is developing a DVD version.”
We are proud to be partnering with Panasonic and their LUMIX cameras on a new project! Check out the beautiful media we got using their GH2 cameras!
According to the press release from the UC Berkeley News Center, the website includes “breathtaking, high-definition photos and video” of the tropical montane cloud forest.

We are the feature of “Walking in the Clouds,” a National Geographic Newswatch article written by Fabio Amador of the NGS Waitt Grant Program. The footage in the video is not posted anywhere on the website….check it out.
Canopy in the Clouds is honored to be recognized for its contributions to EcoService by the Ecological Society of America and the Union of Concerned Scientists at the Annual Meeting of the ESA in Austin, Texas.
