Public Presentation: Native Trees, Part of the Connecting People with Nature Series by STINAPA
January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm AST
This free, public lecture is co-hosted by DCNA, STINAPA, and Echo Foundation. The speaker, Mr. Maarten van Pelt, is a student from the Wageningen University in Holland, and he will present his findings on the habitat preference of individual native trees on Bonaire, based on vegetation and soil types.
The results from this study can help Echo and other conservation organizations on Bonaire to identify suitable areas for reforestation and enable a better insight to which species to plant in which areas. The study is focused on eight well known native trees, such as the Brasilwood (Haematoxylum brasiletto), Lignum Vitae (Guaiacum officinale), and the Calabash tree (Crescentia cujete).
