June 15 is the International Day of the Tree. In Ojochal, we celebrate this day as the Day of the Ojoche. There used to be quite a lot of ojoche trees in Ojochal, but now there are only a few. The Ojoche committee wants to reintroduce the ojoche tree in Ojochal, and you are invited to celebrate with us at the Salón Comunal in Ojochal, June 15, at 10 a.m. We will start with a civil act from the Tortuga School, with songs and an explanation of the day.
Then there will be a presentation about the ojoche tree by Dr. Martín Artavia, expert ojoche biologist. Federico Solórzano from the organization Planet Conservation will amuse us with his stories. At the end of the celebration, we will plant some ojoche trees. During the entire event there will be tasty, typical food available.
On May 22, a well-known Costa Rican cyclist, Alejandro Alvarado, was hit and killed close to Liberia by a truck. The driver left the scene, but police caught him. Alejandro was training for the Guanaride, an international event in Costa Rica. On Sunday, June 24, an event will be held in Ojochal to launch the CUIDENOS campaign for cyclist safety on Costa Rica’s roads. For more information, visit http://cuidenos.org/eventos.htm or contact Marie-Danielle and Robert at email@example.com or 2786-5124.We hope that the CUIDENOS campaign will help prevent cyclists’ deaths.
