The VSPT, in partnership with the Mvule Trust, constructed a tree nursery and conservation outreach program in the Kyambura area, located near Kyambura Gorge Lodge in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda.
The tree nursery aims to establish a large nursery of 400,000 indigenous trees on VSPT land adjacent to the national park. The young trees will be handed out to community members living in the National Park and also planted in the VSPT 100 acre restoration area along the Kyambura Gorge.
Guests are encouraged to participate in the reforestation project whilst walking through the Kyambura Gorge Buffer area and Kyambura Wetland. With the help of the community and of Volcanoes guests, approximately 5000 trees have been planted.
