TEGUCIGALPA, Jun 4 (Tierramérica).- The Honduran capital and the southern city of Choluteca are leading up an environmental awareness initiative based on the reforestation of watersheds and other deforested areas.
In Tegucigalpa, the initiative is being promoted by city councilor Doris Gutiérrez, primarily in the district of San Francisco, a slum neighborhood whose inhabitants have planted over 3,000 trees over the past three years for the recovery of green areas and the Los Laureles spring water reserve.
Claudia de Soriano, of the Choluteca Solidarity Foundation, told Tierramérica that this year some 2,500 trees will be planted in the city, including hardwood, fruit and ornamental trees.
