Wed, 26 Jul 2017 — International Mangrove Day

Friends of Corozal United for Sustainability (FOCUS) invites everyone to come “face to leaf” with Corozal’s mangroves.

Wednesday, 26th July, 2017, from 9am-noon, at Mangrove Park. There will be activities to help you learn more about the importance of these wonderful trees in our life, and their role in fighting climate change.

We will take you on an adventure of discovery (tour) of our very special Mangrove Park, including red, black, and white mangroves, and their allies, the buttonwood.

You will join us in the imitation of a Mangrove Nursery by planting the red mangrove propagules (seeds) in recycled liter size plastic bottles (please help us by bringing your own). This is a beginning toward restoring mangroves along our coast lost to develpment. It also helps raise awareness in our community.

We can all play a very important active role in helping to turn around Climate Change, as stewards along the coast of the Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

The location of Mangrove Park is here.
