Caguas Botanical and Cultural Garden
This report developed educational materials that can be used to increase the environmental literacy of visitors to the Caguas Botanical and Cultural Garden. The team utilized general and archival research, field expeditions and expert interviews to complete the project. The team developed a new trail, Back to Our Forest Roots Trail System. To complement this trail the team cataloged and researched 128 plants found along the trail. The team also developed interpretive stories based on 25 indigenous plants known by the Tainos that are located on the trial. The team then designed a guided brochure that included interpretive stories, descriptions of the extant petroglyphs, explanations of the grove areas, a map of the new trail (FoRTS), a glossary of Tainos terms, and uses of the plants.
