One of our member watering trees seedlings
Growing of seedlings
A lot of seedlings has been grown by this group. These seedlings are later transplanted from the nursery to the place where environmental reclamation is to be done. This exercise has never been easy as it involves sourcing of seeds, seedbed preparation and even the land to be used has to be acquired. It therefore means a lot of money is needed.
Planting of trees
After the seedlings have matured, they will then have to be planted on the targeted site. The sites are those that are normally targeted for reclamation. These are areas that deforestation has been done or those areas which are swampy. This is to ensure the environment is conducive for sustainable development.
Provision of education to residents
Another important activity done by this group is to educate the residents on the importance of conservation of environment. They are also thought about the ways in which environment are conserved and reclaimed.
“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
