LCHPP - Reforestation for Monarchs & Watershed Protection

Year Planted: 2010
Trees Planted: 200,000
Location: Mexico

This project will plant 200,000 trees on 198 acres of land in Michoacan, Mexico, helping to reforest two distinct areas of Michoacans highlands. The first area being reforested is a Monarch butterfly biosphere reserve. The Monarch butterfly spends its winter in this habitat, but the recent human population surge in the area has caused people to move on to the reserve. The second location contains two highland lakes that are very important to the encompassing watershed. Along with reforesting these two areas, this project provides an educational outreach program for the local communities to help them understand the importance of protecting the areas trees.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
