Project Kaanana initiative below the theme Forest Under Construction monthly event was conducted successfully on 25th August 2013. Dr. Harish Bhat could convince Dr. Gururaja K. V. (Batrachologist, CiSTUP Dept., Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) to educate participants on Frogs.
The monthly Forest Under Construction under the hood of Project Kaanana with the theme “Know Your Plants” was successfully carried out on 27th July 2013 at Ramakrishna Mission Shivanahalli campus. Around 60 participants turned out, of which, many belonged to young generation – the future hope of conservation!
The event commenced with breakfast followed by a quick introduction to the history of the place, it’s work so far and it’s objectives and mission in the future.
A week long volunteering from LSI had their impact in all fields including Education, Environment etc. where they volunteered and distributed School Kits in collaboration with Youth for Seva. As part of their Conservation efforts they had a sapling plantation drive at the Mission campus where they had their hands soiled and toiled to plant and sponsor for around 100 Saplings. This is unique in terms of increasing the buffer of Bannerghata National Park, Planting all Western Ghat species and preserving native and endemic species rather than exotic species as in Bangalore.
