The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Guanacaste is one of the most visited areas of Costa Rica. To keep the development in balance with nature, a campaign for planting trees in the main districts of Liberia was initiated this weekend.

As explained by David Morales, president of the Cantonal Associations Union, the initiative formed under the name “Reclaim Liberia” seeks to advance the work for many years by involving the community.

“Reclaiming Liberia is a feeling of Liberians, who for many aspects of this beautiful White City, has been forgotten and abandoned by local governments. And we are the new generation called to retrieve our county,” said Morales.

About 100 Liberian citizen, armed with shovels and clubs, showed that problems can be reversed when there is unity and a common goal.

The first 300 trees of 3,000 that they are intended for the project were planted in the neighborhood Corazón de Jesús.

The campaign supports the Cantonal Associations Union of Liberia, ANDE, the National University (UNA), private enterprise and civil society.
