Native Plants workshop with ProNativas

El Remanso participated in the native plants workshop organized by the local organization "Friends Of The Osa" and given by ProNativa. The workshop focused on the need of using non-exotic plants in the local gardens. Different aspects from landscaping, which native or endemic plants to use and how to collect the seeds were discussed. The group also learned how to create a native plant nursery thanks to the advice of the experts from ProNativas (for more information visit El Remanso has had its own tree nursery for many years, not only for planting the trees in our Private Reserve but also to donate trees for local reforestation projects. For landscaping the lodge uses mainly native plants, minimizing the use of non local plants and avoiding all invasive plants. Most of the newly planted areas are 100% native plants.
