SISTER PARK / SISTER SCHOOLS
Since 2010, the Pinnacles National Park Foundation has provided financial support to the Sister Park/Sister School program between Pinnacles National Park (PNP), and Quebrada del Condorito National Park (PNQC), in Argentina. Local schools adjacent to these parks participate in Spanish language cross-continental exchanges of knowledge facilitated by park ranger visits to the classroom. Students learn about the unique ecosystems and natural/cultural resources of their area and in turn take pride in protecting these resources. This year, in partnership with the Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista, the program is being offered as an after school club at two schools in San Benito County and is expanding to included a second park in Ecuador in cooperation with the Ecuadorian Government.
