Last volunteering day of 2017

27 December 2017

It is about to end a terrible year for the Galician woods. Thus, to bid farewell to 2017, nothing better than working on the regeneration of our woods.

Photograph of the volunteersMeteorologists are announcing a short pause in the squalls, allowing a morning with smooth temperatures and partly cloudy sky. We are taking this opportunity to go up to A Espenuca, to continue the work we had started last November 19 on the 1,6 hectare plot in which we do land stewardship at the foot of the chapel. The aim is to eliminate the remaining eucalyptus trees and to clear away gorse, brooms and bramble, so that the scrub does not hinder the growth of the native trees. We will also have to clear the vegetation around the trees we had planted, because they are still very small.

If you want to know in detail what we are doing at this wood, you can look up the section Fraga da Espenuca campaign on our website.

Should you like to participate, please send us your data in advance (complete name, ID, date of birth and mobile number). Thus, we will be able to inform you on last minute changes, you will be covered by an accident insurance policy and you will facilitate organization. In section Contact you will find the necessary information.

Meeting point: Outpatient Clinic of Betanzos, where we can share cars.
Date: December 30th, 2017.
Time: We will be leaving at 9.30 a.m., coming back at 2 p.m.

Photograph of the volunteersPost data: Just as forecasted by meteorologists, the twelve volunteers that got to A Espenuca enjoyed a wonderful morning. They got to complete the clearing of gorse and broom on the lower part of the plot, and uprooting some eucalyptus trees and Blackwood acacia. With this action on New Year’s Eve they showed their firm commitment to the conservation of our native woods. In early 2018 we will set a day to go on working on the rest of the plot.
