I want to thank you for supporting the construction of trails within the Golfito Field Station. Thanks to your help and that of 8 volunteers from the University of Costa Rica who came for several days with picks and showels in their hands. We worked in two trails that cover all different types of environments from recovering pasture, to secondary forest to primary (virgin) forest. We also had the assistance of two paid workers who were there for the entire week. In five days we were able to set up a little over a kilometre of trails.
These trails are soo easy to walk on that we believe both kids, teachers and researchers will be able to safely acces different sectors of the field station. We still have to build a few bridges just because the cross deep crevices or swampy sections. We also purchased 12 cubic metres of gravel to pour on the trails, but we have to wait for the rainy season so that we can see where it is actually need it. We also hope to make secondary trails from these first trails, in the future. The new trails will move onto the hilly sections of the forest.
In the mean time, please check the pictures we are attaching for you to see some of the work and progress we made the week of the 2st through the 25th of january.
