- Another 50 trees have been added to the municipal DIF and 500 have been planted in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle in addition to the 300 already planted in San Vicente and the 100 in the Municipality. There are another 1,000 to be planted in Jarretaderas, Sayulita and Lo de Marcos, and even more in the works for Bucerías.
The reforestation project in the Riviera Nayarit is forging ahead for 2015 in different areas of Banderas Bay. The goal is to surpass the earlier established goal of 2,000 trees and plants in the municipality, something that is very likely to happen before the end of the month of September.
The Public Works and Ecology Department of the Banderas Bay Municipality is in charge of this activity in coordination with the Nuevo Vallarta Earthcheck Committee and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, with the support of volunteer citizens from the community, hotels and civil associations.
In addition to the 300 trees already planted in San Vicente and the 100 planted on the grounds of the Municipality, another 50 were placed in the municipal DIF and 500 in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle this past August 31st and September 1st, respectively.
There are still another 1,100 trees to be planted: 300 in Jarretaderas on September 7th, 300 in Sayulita on September 18th and 500 in Lo de Marcos on September 28th. These new saplings will help surpass the goal of 2,000 plants put into the ground, but there are still more to be placed in Bucerías, with the quantity and date still to be determined.
What all these seedlings have in common is that all the species are native to the region and are divided between ornamental plants and timber-yielding trees. The activities begin at 7 a.m. in anticipation of the higher temperatures as the day wears on.
