Students from Olhão planted 100 stone pines

The initiative arose after the Municipality's application for the Public Grant for Autochthonous Forest Species, from the Common Forest project

This week, 4th year students from Escola da Cavalinha (Olhão) planted 100 stone pine trees in the Pinheiros de Marim Sports and Leisure Park. 

This environmental education activity had the theme “Every Tree Counts” and allowed children to realize the importance of what they were learning in a fun way.

The initiative arose after the Municipality's application for the Public Grant for Autochthonous Forest Species, from the Common Forest project.

Related to the areas of educational projects and urban forest parks, these planting actions allow the improvement and/or maintenance of public urban parks in order to improve the natural and environmental characteristics of these spaces.

In this case, the project contributes to promoting the characteristics of the Portuguese forest, as well as natural and environmental conditions in urban spaces.

This activity consisted of two phases: the day before, an awareness-raising action among students, in a classroom context, where the issue of climate change and the need to increase the forest area was addressed, and another which consisted of planting properly speaking.
