Golf for Restoration of Mt Kenya forest
Nature Kenya is again holding its Charity Golf tournament at The Karen Country Club on the 29th March.
The theme is again “Lungs for Kenya” and the objective is to raise money to support the restoration of the Mt Kenya Forest.
Mt Kenya provides water to over two million people, over 70% of Kenya’s hydro electricity and the potential to supply 1 million hectares of land targeted for irrigation. Unfortunately, Mt Kenya is becoming increasingly degraded, erosion is high, dams are silting, the quantity and quality of water is reducing and water treatment costs are increasing. Restoring Mt Kenya is not a choice but an obligation. Nature Kenya will partner with 23 Community Forest Associations to plant two million trees in Mt. Kenya forest at a cost of Ksh 140million in 10 years.
Over the last three years of the Lungs for Kenya campaign, 300,000 trees have been planted through concerted efforts of the private sector, local communities and government. From the money raised at last year’s golf tournament we were able to plant 29,000 seedlings with a 90% survival rate.
