Reforestation and Nursery Project
In 2017 our guest’s participation led to:
- 15,000+ seeds planted in our nurseries to begin their growth
- 10,000+ seedlings transplanted from nurseries into the Dominican soil
- 8+ acres of land reforested
Our guests were involved in local reforestation efforts designed to improve the livelihoods of Dominican families, restore degraded land, and contribute to forest and wildlife conservation throughout the region. They specifically participate in different activities at the Nursery that range from the simple potting of seedlings and/or seeds, to transporting plants, to more physically demanding efforts like mixing the potting soil, digging holes, transporting seedlings, and planting.
