Ten volunteers travelled to the natural space last weekend to help out with tasks to restore this habitat for the second time.

The Naturgy Foundation’s Environmental Volunteering Programme has just celebrated its fifth anniversary; five years during which 35 m3 of waste has been cleared and more than 3,600 plant specimens have been planted in various natural spaces in Spain.

A dozen Naturgy employees and family members took part in the environmental recovery of the fauna and flora in the protected ecosystem of Garraf Natural Park last weekend. This initiative is part of the Naturgy Foundation’s Corporate Environmental Volunteering programme, which promotes environmental awareness and works with the Global Nature Foundation to conserve protected areas and species in the long term.

The activities consisted of collecting 19 groasis waterboxxes (devices to help trees grow); constructing, cleaning and placing 9 nest boxes; and planting of around thirty plants (16 buckthorns and 9 hawthorns).

Naturgy Foundation volunteers participated in a similar environmental activity in this natural environment in 2014, when the environmental volunteering programme was launched.

Garraf Park is part of the Network of Natural Parks promoted and managed by the Diputació de Barcelona.
