More Than 23,400 Trees Planted This Summer!

Our summer reforestation was wonderful!  Joined by 151 women, men and children from Crescencio Morales, Donaciano Ojeda and Nicolas Romero indigenous communities, this summer we planted 23,400 trees in 20 hectares! It is impressive to witness the enthusiasm felt by parents, teachers and children that participate in the tree planting. The kids were especially eager and expressed their joy unabashedly. One little girl said it best, “I am so happy that we are planting trees for the monarchs! That way they’ll keep on coming back to visit us every winter!”

During June, July and August we also carried out six workshops in the States of Mexico and Michoacan: two to train seventy-four women and fifty-two men in reforestation techniques, and four to construct cisterns with the participation of twenty-one women and eight men. During this period, the communities built thirty-five fuel-efficient stoves, one cistern to be used by a family and another for the community.

The forest is ready to receive the monarchs this coming fall! With your support and the help of local communities we are making sure the monarchs keep migrating back south.

YOUR contributions ARE making a difference!
