Echo announces Tree Planting Day

Echo is pleased to invite members of the community to a second Tree Planting Day.  This event is a part of Echo’s reforestation work, which has been mandated and funded by the Openbaar Lichaam Bonaire. 

The Tree Planting Day will take place Saturday, November 19th from 8am to 12pm in the Washington Slagbaai National Park.   Echo is looking for volunteers who will come and help us meet our goal of planting out at least 500 trees into just over one hectare of land. 

Transportation will be provided for volunteers from the entrance of the Park to the work site.  Refreshments and snacks will also be provided for all volunteers.  It is recommended that each person wear closed-toed shoes, and to bring a water bottle, sunscreen and insect repellent.  If you have garden tools, please bring those as well!

In addition to planting out the trees, volunteers will be needed for watering the plants once they are in their new “homes.”

If you would like to volunteer for this event, you may contact Echo at: info@echobonaire.org or by calling +599 785-4128.
