Easter Weekend Outreach Builds Awareness

Over this year's Easter weekend, teams engaged in fire patrols from the Forestry Division and local community-based organizations took the opportunity to meet with persons who were visiting the coastal region and Jagruma River for rest and relaxation.  The teams shared information on the value of the Swamp and partnered with the ICare programme to distribute garbage bags for proper collection and disposal of plastics.  

This activity was an public outreach activity developed under the Improving Forest and Protected Area Management project by the Nariva Swamp Subcommittee.

Read brief reports on the activity from the Forestry Division and Biche Environmental Action Group.
