THURSDAY, JULY 9TH: NATIONAL TREE DAY
JULY: NATIONAL REFORESTATION MONTH
In 1951, the second Thursday of the month of July was designated as “National Tree Day” in Mexico. On July 7, 1959 the entire month of July was declared “National Reforestation Month.”
In Puerto Vallarta, all residents are encouraged to begin a home garden of local trees from seed, transplanting those seedlings in the field when the tree has reached 1 meter in height. Watering the tree in the field during the dry season will ensure that the tree will survive for many years to come.
To celebrate National Tree Day Grupo Ecológico de Puerto Vallarta, A.C. will be giving free seeds of local trees at the Presidencia Square on Thursday, July 9th, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. with additional information for planting
Help keep Puerto Vallarta green and growing!
