This cohort is currently working on preparing a portion of land to create an additional location to promote eco-tourism on the island. The proposal is to beautify this green space by strategically placing plants and fruit trees to encourage indigenous birds which in turn will benefit and encourage bird watchers/observers.
This cohort is aspiring to pursue bamboo harvesting and curing due to the abundance of bamboo available in the area. There is much potential to construct bamboo benches, huts, bird feeders etc. The existing river is expected to be dredged with the hopes of including rafting as a part of the available
recreational activities in addition to hiking, biking, camping and much more.
Once the project is completed, it is intended to promote the aspect of socioeconomic development. It seeks to encourage sole traders, small businesses and partnerships to showcase and sell their locally-made products, services, crafts and delicacies. It is the hope that domestic, as well as international tourists, can enjoy the ambience.
This project is in collaboration with the contractor G.A. Finisherz, supervised by site supervisor Rayann M. Duncan and overseen by the project manager, Maxlon Roberts.
