Spotlight On

La Mesa Watershed

We have achieved remarkable results in restoring the La Mesa Watershed and Eco Park:

88.75% of the forest was restored.
1,552 hectares reforested.
1.3 million trees were planted and protected, with a 92.5% survival rate.

At La Mesa Eco Park, we prioritize eco-conscious activities, promoting gardening, learning, and team-building. The park’s resilience is evident in its increased popularity, attracting 118,000 visitors in 2022. We plan to enrich 500 more hectares, establishing a living laboratory for forest conservation.
