The 30,000 trees for the Canopy Project include reforestation to take place in 45 communities in two municipalities within the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve in the state of Querétaro. They will take place on public lands, schools and private lands in temperate zones.
The Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve’s strategic biogeographical position between the Arctic Neotropical and the Mesoamerican Mountain regions makes Sierra Gorda one of the most ecologically rich and diverse places in Mexico. It comprises 14 vegetation types, dominated by the tropical sclerophyllous forest. The conservation of the ecosystems of Sierra Gorda is essential as they host a number of threatened species and serve as a refuge for migratory species.
