I assisted with training and support during my stay . The project grew and distributed more than 140,000 tree seedlings during the 2004-2005 season. During my stay the Mara nurseries arranged Tree planting days at local schools as part of their Conservation in Schools Education Programme. Seedlings were donated to schools and in a fun day for the children, the seedlings were planted in and around the school yard where they children could water their seedlings and look after and nurture them to grow. The parents of these children were also encouraged to plant indigenous seedlings from the nursery in plantation schemes near their homes so that the wood could be harvested for post and fence making to protect their cattle from wild predators. Without this facility, indigenous trees in pockets of last remaining Kenya forests are cut down.
