Today was an adventure in the woods! We visited the Los Cabezas De San Juan Nature Reserve where they preserve one of Puerto Rico’s forests! We were guided throughout the day by an amazing women named Alejandra who’s energy and enthusiasm about the forest made everything more interesting! In the reserve we planted about 50 brand new trees! The goal for the reserves is to plant one million trees in 5 years. We got to do our part which is an amazing feeling. We also removed coconut trees which are invasive to Puerto Rico and were able to pull them out with roots and all if under 6 feet. We ended the day at the beach right next to the reserve which was awesome after being in a hot forest all day. We were able to bond and reflect on our experiences at the reserve.
