Community Reforestation in Clayton
Hasta: Septiembre 16, 2012 - 12:00 pm
Come and plant a tree with your community!
On Sunday, September 16, we will be reforesting one of our parks with help from the Smithsonian Institute of Panama. The event is open to the whole family. The Smithsonian will bring saplings of native Panamanian species (cocobolo, espavé, cedro espino, etc.) from their nursery in Gamboa. They will also provide a lecture on smart reforestation before the planting begins.
The Smithsonian Nursery will provide tools. All we ask is for your support in this activity with your time, energy and a voluntary donation to help pay the activity’s costs.
The reforestation of our public green spaces with native tree species can bring many benefits including creating corridors, food sources and shelter for animals, protecting soil from erosion, and increasing shade from the sun. If this activity turns out to be positive we will have more next year.
