Plant a tree program
Actively support the “Bajo del Tigre” elementary school and at the same time contribute to reforestation by participating in the The One World Expedition “Plant a tree program”.
The OWE “Plant a tree program” was begun in honor of Lonnie Dupre and Eric Larsen, two renowned Polar explorers who completed the first ever trek to the North Pole in summer.
Their goal was to create international awareness about the dangers of global warming as well as to collect scientific data to measure the effects of global warming in the Arctic.
A few months after successfully completing their historic journey, Lonnie and Eric visited the Pacuare Lodge to offer a presentation detailing their grueling expedition. On December 6th 2006, the day after their presentation, Lonnie and Eric planted a Mahogany seedling, thereby initiating this fund.
The cost per tree is US$15 which will be donated to the “Bajo del Tigre” elementary school located a 45 minute horseback ride away. Donations will be used to purchase materials, help with maintenance, and to educate the children about how they can protect the environment.
Participants will take part in a tree planting event and your tree will include a small plaque with your name and date of the planting
