Planting trees to restore vital resources

“Day Zero", or the day when water runs out, is a looming threat for the arid territory around the Municipality of Chihuahua.

In Chihuahua, we are working with ASES, to plant trees in Sierra del Nido to halt desertification and help recharge aquifers. With Reforestamos Mexico, we are planting local species with community forestry brigades in the Iztaccihuatl-Popocatepetl National Park and in the Nevado de Toluca Flora and Fauna Protection Area, to conserve and restore forests without which surrounding cities would face major difficulties.
