Our primary role in ecological cycle is to spread seeds. Native trees play a vital role in the ecosystem. They support numerous other species and hence it’s important to save them from extinction. Additionally they need less water than exotic species hence making them crucial for saving water too.
This walk will be an effort to bring a change and help our ecosystem. We will collect seeds of native trees for the purpose of growing them for plantation across the city. In addition to this, we will illustrate the relationship these trees share with the forest around them and their role in preserving their vitality.
