" El día lunes 17 de septiembre trate de ingresar los datos para lograr participar, en plantando árboles el 21 de setiembre, pero no me enviaron la contraseña por tal razón le envió los datos tomados.
Durante el día viernes los estudiantes repartieron en la institución afiches y conversaron con los profesores sobre el proyecto.
Mi institución no tiene zonas verdes, por tal razón debí buscar un lugar para realizar la siembre de los árboles y debimos hacerla el día siguientes sábado 22 a las 8:00 a.m., participaron 7 estudiantes sembrando 5 árboles de naranjo y Jacaranda. No conozco los nombres en latin.

As you plant your tree imagine it growing towards the sun, symbolizing energy, endurance, hope and love.
Give it a little kiss, sending your own strength into the living tree so that it can carry a message of love and share it with the birds and the stars.

School La Tigra:
"We will plant trees as part of the biological corridor that unites Costa Rica and Nicaragua. This will give this activity further content. Some parents and institutional leaders will also participate with us. The Tigra School is part of an environmental education program promoted by the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) in Costa Rica. This proyect will become part of OTS's La Selva Biological Station - Childrens Challenge proyect, where children can gain points for their schools by participating in environmental awareness activities. These points will later become much needed prizes for their schools, which have little resources. Paper, books, pencils even paint may be their prize."
La Trinidad:"Trinidad is a small, local, public school. The interest of the children in environmental topics is unbelievable. This school has their own reforestation proyect and the kids cut the grass with machetes under rain or shine. They are admirable. We are proud to participate in this event, you can count on seeing these trees grow."
