Rubbish Collection Awareness For Pedestrian Routes

The Casa do Povo de São Roque do Faial will carry out another awareness-raising and rubbish collection session on the pedestrian route between the regional road 103 and the Balcões viewpoint, Ribeiro Frio, tomorrow, Wednesday the 17th of August from 2:30 pm.

Talking to the media, a Casa do Povo representative stated:

“With this activity, we intend to make people aware of the importance of the forest and the care they must take when doing these routes, namely, not throwing rubbish into the undergrowth, but either taking it home or placing it in the respective containers. In addition to the collection of rubbish, the Casa do Povo aims to raise awareness of the importance of the forest, its wealth and its contribution to our region. Our laurel forest, its importance for the entire ecosystem of the area cannot be overstated. In this sense, and we have the collaboration of the Instituto de Florestas e Conservação da Natureza (IFCN), who will provide one of its technicians to accompany us in this activity. Participants will have the opportunity to get to know the local fauna and flora, especially indigenous plants.”

The activity is open to everyone, and all you have to do is be at the Ribeiro Frio forestry post by 2.30 pm.

The objective with this type of initiative is to diversify activities, and provide practical knowledge to Casa do Povo members and the general public.
