On September 27th, the Elementary Ecolution Club, together with all the grade 4 students, went to the Sintra forest to work on the CAISL adopted plot.
This is a project that started November 2022 in partnership with ‘Oxigénio’, a plan to promote and defend nature and biodiversity. By adopting a plot, CAISL maintains a portion of land for the duration of five years during which volunteers (students, staff and parents) clean the plot from evasive species and plant autochthonous ones as a way to preserve the Cascais-Sintra Natural Park.
In this last visit, volunteers were asked to remove an invasive and exotic species called “acácia”. It was a lot of work, but students and teachers had a lot of fun!
