When the rains arrive, summer is the time for reforestation in the monarch preserve. We just heard from Alternare, our reforestation partners, that 20,566 trees have been planted (pine, oak, alder, oyamel and ash) on an average of 18.5 hectares. 605 people participating in this massive planting effort. Trees were planted in 16 locations in six communities (Crescencio Morales, Curungueo, Donaciano Ojeda, El Capulín, Francisco Serrato and Nicolás Romero). Your generous donations made this possible and the monarchs will thank you for years to come.
Currently, Atlernare is working on planting maps of the polygons with the coordinates. When completed they will be able to tell exactly us how many hectares were reforested.
