I took a group of 28 college students / community members to Sleeping Giant Lodge in January. During one of the hikes on the Medicinal plant trail we came across a rather large grasshopper that I took several photos of. When we came back to Illinois I sent the photos to the Illinois Natural History Survey. They indicated this was the first confirmed sighting of this Genus of grasshopper in Belize. See the article posted on http://ricochetscience.com/ for more information.
Talk about an incredible opportunity for students and community members alike.
