June is a very important month in Costa Rica to celebrate and give back to their environment. This past June, the associates of The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal banded together to celebrate Environment Day (6/5) and National Tree Day (6/15).
To celebrate, contribute, and educate others, The Westin’s Environmental team put several activities. The first activity took place on June 7 at a tree plantation on the Refuge of Wildlife Conchal with more than 50 guests and associates participating.
They joined at a second tree plantation on June 21 with students of their Dual Education Program (Westin, INA, and German Chamber) to discuss strategy to protect the headwaters of the Lajas River.
The final activity was an Environmental Education Workshop with children from the Cartagena School, which included a tour through the Reserva Conchal to learn the importance of protecting natural resources through experiencing nature.
