Mt. Rokko Forest Revitalization
Forest Preservation Activity in Rokko Mountain
Peace & Nature is working to revitalize the forest on Mt. Rokko as part of our mission to revive and harmonize with the natural environment. Our work area is near the peak of Mt. Kinchozan, adjacent to the hiking path connecting Hokura Shrine and Kazafukiiwa. There are reports of harmful insects in the eastern Rokko area that enter inside trees and cause them to wilt. During this workshop, participants will create and place plastic bottle traps to capture these insects without using pesticides. Want to learn how a plastic bottle trap works? Japanese and international participants will collaborate in this event. We welcome your participation.
