The Connecticut River runs over 410 miles through four states, eventually flowing into Long Island Sound. We study the significance of the river to indigenous cultures and livelihoods, explore the impact of human activity and climate change on its watershed, and learn about today’s conservation work.
“With its emphasis on empathy and general intelligence in planning, Envoys has quickly emerged as a premier global program provider. They are well worth the attention of any of our schools.”— Paul Miller , Former Director of Global Initiatives, NAIS
“I was incredibly impressed by the care taken by Envoys. Before we even hit the ground, there was an emphasis on comprehending impact on our destination’s environment that I appreciated..Throughout the trip, our Envoys leaders made sure that we continued to be conscious of impact. That awareness of cause and effect is something that often gets lost when traveling, and Envoys did not allow it to. During this trip, there was never a moment I did not feel safe and cared for nor a moment where I did not feel I was learning something!”— Keylee S. , Student, Dalton South Africa 2014
“It was not only the good times with our friends or the relationships we built but how we were after we came back, returning to this agitated society with a new view of ourselves and not just our impact on the world, but the world’s impact on us.”— Gabriela , Student, Deerfield Colombia 2014
