La Reserva Forest Foundation

La Reserva Forest Foundation is a Costa Rican non-profit, tax exempt foundation working to restore and preserve native tropical forests, dedicated to creating "tree bridges" linking isolated forest islands using volunteers and the local school communities, and fighting global warming through various carbon neutral projects.
Revisiting Kiki's Corridor
 
This project is revisiting and repairing damage and doing maintenance to our first completed biological corridor. Kiki, a rancher and local land owner, is committed to keeping the corridor on his property that connects La Reserva to another large forest patch 1 km away. While sections of the corridor have thrived over the last seven years, some sections have seen exotic grasses taken over and damage to the fencing. In these places the tree seedlings have died and need to be replaced. project reportread updates from the field

Rio Sol Bio Corridor, Maleku Reserve, Costa Rica
 
In January 2012 we finished planting the last trees in a 10 - 15m. wide biological corridor along the Rio Sol. This native forest restores the flora and fauna the Maleku tribe depend upon for a full life. We are now maintaining the baby trees which is vital for their survival. Due to their fast growth and the maintenance up until now we only have 3 months of maintenance left on this project. project reportread updates from the field
Engaging Minds: Planting Trees, Inspiring Youth
 
This project will reforest one hectare of land with a local elementary school, Jardin de los Ninos. Students will learn about tropical forests, climate change, and the importance of reforestation. They will be involved in all stages of the project, including collecting the seedlings, establishing a nursery at their school, and tending the trees until planting day. Ultimately, the students will help plant their trees, monitoring and maintaining their new forest over the next several years. project reportread updates from the field

It's For The Monkeys and 60 School Children
 
The project increases the recently planted 'For The Monkeys' biological corridor by 1.5 hectares (1600 trees) making a grand total of 8600 trees or 8.5 hectares of restored forest. The local students will also be participating in the project by collecting the baby trees, caring for them in the nursery, helping with the planting and watching them grow right across the street from their school. project reportread updates from the field
Educational Reforestation, La Fortuna, Costa Rica
 
The project will turn grassland into a native forest with +/- 500 trees that consist of around 100 different native species. The project size is 0.5 ha (1.24 ac) & located next to a creek. A pond creation is in progress that will provide habitat for wildlife. The project will be used for educational purposes & organic food production. Student groups will be given tours & information on how organic crops/fruits are grown. Additional environmental benefits are erosion control & water management. project reportread updates from the field
