Canopy Family Brings Christmas to Huile
On December 19 we hosted our Children's Christmas Party at the public school in Huile, Panama. It was an afternoon of games, food, gifts and fun entertainment, and even a visit from Santa! This year, Daniel brought his drone to fly around and take aerial pictures of the party; it was no doubt one of the highlights for the kids, who loved seeing this interesting machine fly over their heads. We would like to thank all of our guests who have stayed with us this year for making it possible for us to host this Christmas party for these wonderful kids. It brings us so much joy to give back to local communities and put a smile on everyone's faces!
Canopy Family Inaugural Butterfly Tour
The world of butterflies is becoming very visible and popular among birders and nature enthusiasts. Canopy Family's first butterfly tour was an exciting and memorable week at the Canopy Lodge and Canopy Tower in December. The butterflies were abundant and we saw dozens of metalmarks, brushfoots, hairstreaks and skippers—168 species were found during the tour, including three species of jewelmarks seen on the first day! (photo: Giant Anteros) The world of butterflies and skippers is fascinating, and we were happy to share it with our guests in Panama. Click here for our trip report from this exciting new tour. We are looking forward to our upcoming butterfly tours in May and August 2015! There are still some spaces available, please contact us for more information.
