"The Alexander Skutch Biological Corridor has an area of 6,012 hectares and includes the communities of Quizarrá, Santa Elena, Trinidad, Montecarlo, San Francisco, Santa Marta, Santa Maria and San Ignacio, belonging to the Canton of Perez Zeledon, rural villages in the southern part of Costa Rica. It was named after naturalist and writer Alexander F. Skutch, who was born in Baltimore, Maryland and died in San Isidro del General, just one week before his 100th birthday.
Two features give this biological corridor a distinctive identity: 1. Water resources in the Peñas Blancas River basin -spanning the whole corridor- and 2. The relationship that people have with Dr. Skutch's legacy, his estate, his life and his work " Translated from: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corredor_Biol%C3%B3gico_Alexander_Skutch_%28CoBAS%29 (2015)
