El Remanso's staff, together with their families participated in the annual Earth Day celebration yesterday, April 22nd, in the local community town of Puerto Jiménez. The events started at 9 o'clock with a "Earth Day parade" of local conservation organizations and students from the local schools. There were also several activities including educational activities for children, local artists presenting "recycling-related" crafts, local dances and a mini-soccer tournament! The importance of reducing waste and recycle was encouraged with fun games and activities for young children who do represent the future of the Osa Peninsula. One of the activities was a tournament to create a a recycling related collage with used materials: Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth's natural environment.
