Imagine wandering around in the jungles of West Africa searching for water. For Kimberly Burton, assistant professor of practice in the Knowlton School's City and Regional Planning Section and the program coordinator for Ghana Sustainable Change, that's just a part of her job. "We went out, not just into the rural villages, but actually out to the jungle where many people get their water sources, and got to test some of the streams," Burton said. "I was in the middle of one of the hikes, and I texted my friends and family ... 'I'm hiking in the jungle looking for water...it's the coolest thing ever.' It was awesome."
