Examples include workshops such as “Painting Oxcarts on Canvas” and “Basic Karate” at the National Museum in San José; “Where Animals Live” and day and night hikes at the Simón Bolívar Zoo, also in the capital; “Kite Making” and “Textures in Nature” at San José’s Museum of Forms, Spaces and Sounds; and other workshops at San José’s Children’s Museum and the National Biodiversity Institute’s INBioparque in Heredia, north of the capital.
