Community Reforestation in Clayton

Desde: Septiembre 16, 2012 - 8:30 am
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.

BRING:

Closed Shoes or boots

Pants or shorts (the area is clean, no high grass)

Bottled water, Gatorade

Sun Block

Rain jacket in case it rains

Date: September 16th

Place: Clayton, the 600’s area. Behind where AMPYME used to be (see map)

Time: 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

We will be opening holes for saplings starting at 7:30 a.m. for those who want to help.
