The EarthView team will be traveling to Brookline, where team member Dr. Domingo led a Geography Summer Institute earlier in 2009. Dr. Hayes-Bohanan enjoyed leading one small part of that institute, as he described the geography of Latin America. They both thoroughly enjoyed working with Brookline teachers in the beautiful building that houses the Driscoll School. Dr. Domingo will be at a geography conference during this visit, but Dr. Hayes-Bohanan and the rest of the team are looking forward to the visit.

Our September 25 visit coincides with a great number of geographically signficant anniversaries, including:
