Volunteers planted 135 endemic plants

Last Saturday, February 23, the Life Sustainable Laurel Forest Project and the Priolo's Environmental Center promoted a voluntary action by planting endemic plants in one of the areas of natural forest recovered by the project.

The meeting point was at the Municipal Garden of Povoação at 9:30am and had 8 participants, accompanied by two technicians from SPEA. With everything ready they went to the area where the planting activity would take place, in Labaçal at Serra da Tronqueira.

Extremely enthusiastic and with pleasant weather conditions, despite the cloud cover, participants were able to go through that area, already recovered with Laurel Forest and get to know the recovery actions carried out on the area and the species that would be planted that morning.

It were planted 135 plants produced in the nursery of The Laurel Forest Project: 15 Laurel, 12 Virbunum, 12 Lily of the Valley tree, 28 Hawbit, 28 Imperitum and 40 Calluna Vulgaris. These plants were planted in one of the lower areas of Labaçal, an area that was still quite open and unprotected and that with this planting will be more protected and fulfilled.

The 8 volunteers worked enthusiastically and diligently throughout the course of the activity, got to know several species of natural forest in the Azores and even met one of the areas of intervention of the project.

We appreciate the participation and enthusiasm shown by all!

See you soon!
