Bromeliad flower at La Reserva
Thursday, August 5th, two months after planting the “Increasing Tenorio Volcano Forest, Costa Rica”, the maintenance crew went to care for the new seedlings by trimming the tall grass around the base of each. The crew reported that the new trees are doing great, some over 1 meter tall already. This has been an extremely wet year in western Costa Rica.
In fact, it was raining so much while they worked that they didn’t take any photos of the reforested area. This is a report to let you know things are progressing better than expected. The maintenance crew will return in September to all of LRFF’s reforestation sites for cleaning. We will publish photos of this project at that time. In the meantime enjoy these photos of life here at La Reserva on a very rainy day.
Thank you all for your help funding this project. One more step toward healing our Earth.
