Darlington students, families, friends and alumni are invited to spend spring break in the Galápagos Islands and Quito, Ecuador with Science Department Chair Owen Kinney. The 11-day trip will depart March 4 and return March 14, 2023.
"Located on the equator, 600 miles from mainland South America, the Galapagos Islands are home to some of the most spectacular animals and volcanic landscapes in the world," said Kinney. "On snorkeling and hiking trips, the group will have close encounters with marine iguanas, sea lions, green sea turtles, blue-footed Boobies and giant Galápagos tortoises."
