About this Journey

One of our star programs, this expedition to Sichuan, contains an incredible blend of workshops and activities covering creativity, art, and service. We recommend this itinerary for schools that have already done the classic routes in China and are looking for a more in-depth look at China’s wildlife, culture, and history. While most Pandas programs involve a visit to the breeding of a research center, WildChina’s program involves a different private workshop and field studies in the Pandas’ natural wild habitat in the mountains of Sichuan. Our program also involves work with honeybees as a service-learning component.
