Canopy Walkways offer a view into the treetop environment without the effort of climbing the tree itself. Walkways provide a unique tool for scientists, recreationists, and eco-tourists by allowing them safe and easy access into the high-up world of the forest canopy. Once in place, canopy walkways can offer scientitsts opportunities for long-term study sites.
ICAN has worked with Selvatura, a leading canopy eco-tourism company in Monteverde, Costa Rica, to provide scientifically-sound natural history interpretive materials to visitors. Selvatura also offers zip-line canopy tours, for the adventurous tourist.
The Evergreen State College is looking into building a canopy walkway on its campus. Click here for more information on the proposed project.
