"the tours and trails is primarily to connect people to the beauty inherent in nature. This connection will reinspire them, enliven them and educate them."
PEG offers visitors the chance to experience unmanaged nature (in the forested area below the cliff line), manicured nature (in the gully area), and a version of humans working with nature to grow their own food (in the agricultural parts of the property). Each of these pieces of PEG are an opportunity for a person to reconnect with something that is alive in them but that they may not get to see very often.
Recent studies show that the average American adult now spends over 90% of their time indoors, and even though Barbados is not exactly the same, they are certainly trending that way. This this being the case, one can easily forget the beauty, majesty and creativity of the natural world.
There is very little that needs to be established to continue doing the tour operations. A few simple steps toward improving the tour experience and how it represents PEG are
"The tour route should be established clearly and paths widened and flattened to reduce tripping and stepping where people should not (garden beds for example)."
Periodically through the year the trails should be checked for any maintenance needs.
Additionally, the PEG staff should be conscious of the ever changing landscape.
Due to its geology, it is possible that a new hole may open along the tour route on any given day. The PEG team should monitor this.
