Summer 2023 Reforestation Almost Done!

By Monica Missrie | Project Leader

Thirty-three hectares in the buffer area of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve have been reforested to date with a total of 32,890 trees! Fourteen indigenous communities and six ejidos participated including children, youth, women, and men and continue expressing how happy they are to work with Alternare. Felipa, from Cresencio Morales indigenous community has been working with Alternare for six years and told us, “The slopes have been eroded from past landslides and deforestation so I’m planting trees on the edges to stop that from happening and to have the water running through the area remain and not dry out.”

This year the rainy season began during the first week of July, allowing us to start the reforestation in the third week of July, when the soil is damp.

Not only was the forest taken care of, but four workshops to build and maintain cisterns to capture rainwater were held in two indigenous communities. As a result, three community cisterns and one for schools were built. Fifty-nine women and 33 men all worked together to achieve this.

Thanks to your contributions, MBF has been able to support Alternare for 13 years and we are hoping to continue for many years to come.

THANK YOU!!
