I am very pleased to announce that the construction of our new Visitor Centre, which was built in part with grants from the 2011 NEUTROGENA prize, is ready and it became very beautiful building as you can see in the pictures that follow attached.
With this new center can receive students and visitors with much more quality and comfort, allowing a much more pleasant visit to the Concordia Sierra Wildlife Sanctuary. New benches and tables were also made to better accommodate our visitors.
You will see a slideshow with the pictures of the first group of students, parents and teachers who visited us recently and we have already used the new facilities.
Please click on the arrow on the right to see the photos of students, teachers and parents from Municipal School of Maria Gloria Giffoni, Valença, Rio de Janeiro Brazil, participating of a Ecological Trail in Atlantic Rainforest at the Concordia Sierra Wildlife Sanctuary.
However the work still continue as we are using these workers who built the Visitor Center to repair and fix the access road that was badly damaged and spoiled with the passage of many trucks that carried the materials for the construction of these facilities. As this is a mountain road we must protect it as much as we can to prevent the erosion that are caused by the torrential rains that we have every year and are a serious risk to road.
We also build a new gate.
The Agroforestry plantings of this year are over and we could plant something like 500 seedlings of palm, fruit trees and different kinds of woods.
I would like to thank again all your donations that make all this possible.
