Life to the River
Studies made by the Tropical Sierra Foundation, the native species that must be planted around the river were determinated, to recover its original characteristics in its flora, fauna and cleanness, among other elements.
Dos Pinos will plant the little trees, they will give them maintenance, including a watering system for the dry season, and they will watch out for them and their well development.
The National Company of Force and Light, facilitated the native trees of Costa Rica, that are the adequate for the area because of its height, rain precipitation, and territorial conditions.
This work is important, because the recovery of the river wants to be extended to the Turrucares area. That means that the development of a program of environmental education, the reforestation and the sponsorship of companies around the area of El Coyol and Guacima of Alajuela, are necessary.
