“100% BABY ALPACA” is a presentation on a unique expedition, that a group of students were able to take to South America this winter. The Link School is an expeditionary high school located just north of Buena Vista. Comprised of thirteen students and five staff who live and work together in a close communtity. In January they had the opportunity to fly to South America and spend a month in Peru. While they were in Peru they explored many ancient ruins including Machu Picchu and spent a week living with local families, immersed in the language and culture. They also embarked on a five day trek through the high Andes and to wrap up the trip they peaked a 19,000 ft volcano as a group. Over all it was a beautiful trip. The students are recieving a cultural studies credit for this expedition and this presentation is their final. They are presenting a video documentry as an outreach to the local communities this month. There are two showings, and welcome anyone interested in learning about their expedition.
One showing is on Thursday, March 19th from 7:00 – 8:00pm held at the Sangre de Cristo Community room, located on 29780 Hwy 24 N. End in Buena Vista. Then on Friday, March 20th from 6:00 – 7:00 they will be presenting at the Steam Plant on 220 W. Sackett Ave in Salida. For more information please call 719-395-6797
