Reforestation Ahead for MBF!

School Children Working at C.Morales Nursery
School Children Working at C.Morales Nursery

The first semester of the year is usually a busy planning season for Alternare. However, although the local communities are preparing for the upcoming 2017 summer reforestation they have also been participating in the various workshops held by Alternare. During March, April, and May, six workshops were held in Carpinteros, Donaciano Ojeda, Donato Guerra, Jesus de Nazareno, Tuxpan and San Miguel Chichimequillas indigenous communities. A total of 33 women and 41 men participated, resulting in the construction of two cisterns, the establishment of one tree nursery, and the building of seven fuel-efficient stoves, 5 for the communities and 2 for individual families.

A total of 23,400 trees are ready to be planted in approximately 20 hectares. Reforestation will take place in Curungueo, Carpinteros, Donaciano Ojeda, Crescencio Morales and Nicolas Romero indigenous communities and is planned for the beginning of July, during the rainy season to make sure the trees have enough water. The communities have all asked for and agreed with the reforestation, ensuring their collective participation in the process. Environmental education is a key component of Alternare and MBF so most of the trees for the reforestation come from school nurseries. This allows the team to engage children in the entire tree planting experience from beginning to end.

As one of the teachers told us, “The nurseries are an excellent opportunity to discuss the importance of taking care of natural resources with the children, especially the forest where they live”.

As monarchs head north, MBF, Alternare and the local communities will be more than ready to receive them when they come back to Mexico!

All of us, together, will continue doing everything we can to conserve the special and unique migration of the monarch butterflies.

THANK YOU for being a part of our team!
