Greetings from the Canopy...
As this year moves along, we are still busy with various projects as the Canopy Camp Darien is coming along. We are in the process of building the bathrooms for each tent, and each will have a view of the beautiful surrounding forest. Our solar oven is also assembled, and we look forward to preparing delicious dishes with this addition to our camp.
I invite you to take a look at our photo collection on Flickr to see recent photos of the progress at the Canopy Camp Darien.
As construction continues at the Canopy Camp, the surrounding forests are bustling with bird activity, with frequent sightings of Rufous-tailed Jacamar, Gray-cheeked Nunlet and Golden-headed Manakin!
We have a full house at the Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge this month, and our guides are working very hard to show our guests the best birds and a great time here in Panama.
Please stay tuned for more updates in future newsletters, and happy birding!
Best wishes, and I hope to see

Growing our Green Commitment
As an ecotourism endeavor, we feel the need to be as ecologically committed as possible. At all of our lodges, we strive to reduce the use of resources and implement re-use and recycle initiatives. As we are always looking for additional ways to reduce our ecological footprint, the Canopy Tower Family is now in the process of reducing our consumption of plastics, specifically plastic bottles. We are searching for the right solution in order to completely remove them in order to lower our waste signature. Please visit our Green Commitment page to learn more about sustainability in the Canopy Tower Family.
