Notes from Puerto Viejo De Talamanca
With the goal of re-establishing forest corridors and allowing wildlife to safely migrate through their habitats, the nonprofit Talamanca Biological Corridor Association has a greenhouse to motivate people to plant native trees and recuperate degraded areas along rivers, in lands in danger of erosion and in other places. The greenhouse offers hardwood trees for ₡200 ($0.30) and fruit trees for ₡300 ($0.60) each. If you want to buy a lot of trees, you can arrange a payment plan and pay half up front and the other half later. And if you’re looking for a native tree species the greenhouse doesn’t have on hand, it will find it for you.
Stop by the greenhouse in Hone Creek, outside Puerto Viejo, at the big sign for Corredor Biológico y Rancho Tranquilo. For more information, call 2756-8033 or 2756-8136, or e-mail email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you have a group that wants to donate time toward a reforestation effort, the association can help coordinate the project. Fees do apply; a fair wage is paid to a coordinator and the trees and transportation need to be paid for. It’s fun to get dirty and make a difference! For information, contact the writer at 2750-0398 or at the e-mail address below.
