Volunteers restore the Parque de las Canteras de La Zubia area that was burned last summer

Over 200 volunteers participated in a reforestation project in which La Zubia City Council collaborated in the Parque de las Canteras region, in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park that was destroyed last August 2021.

Volunteers from all walks of life, including entire families, have planted 800 native species of trees, aromatic plants, and bushes over the course of five days. All were protected with protectors to ensure their survival. Direct sowing of acorns was also possible. Seed bombs were used to improve the soil quality and cover. Francisco Camara, Councilor for Sustainability and Agroecology at La Zubia, explains that the goal is to restore a Mediterranean forest through citizen participation.

The Reforesta Association and IDEA Educational, Cultural, and Environmental Services have promoted this environmental restoration action. It is part of the citizen and environment movement "Cabula Initiative", which also includes other actors who intervene in this space.

All interested persons are welcome to participate in at least two days worth of environmental volunteer work. These will be on February 20, 2022, and March 5, 2022. Registrations will be made through https://reforesta.es/hazte-voluntario/

The Town Hall of Zubia and IDEA prepared a second plantation on February 22nd for municipal institutes. This allows young people to participate in creating a new forest for Zubia.

Councilor for Sustainability and Agroecology explains that the project will include "maintenance and irrigation in the next two summers to increase survival of all planted trees, which is a significant commitment to restore the environment."

It is expected that around 1,200 plants will be planted before spring and that 90% of the area damaged by last summer's fires will have been covered.

Puri Lopez, the mayor of La Zubia, thanked all those who made this possible. He also highlighted the importance of ecological restoration at Parque de las Canteras which "we want to transform into one of our most important green lungs."

The councilor recalls the Government Team's launch of the municipality's first Forest Fire Prevention Emergency Plan. This ambitious project aims to prevent forest fires like the one in Las Canteras, close to Altos de La Zubia.
