EARTH DAY 2012: save the trees of Bukhan Mt
Date : 2012-04-12 / Hit : 2933
EARTH DAY 2012: Mannam International's Bukhan Mt. Tree Preservation Project

WHEN: Saturday, April 21st
TIME: 1pm – 5pm

LOCATION: Bukhan Mt. National Park—meeting at Suyu Stn. (Line 4): Exit 1

DESCRIPTION: According to Nature Conservationists, Bukhan Mountain has a large population of Oak trees that are currently dying from Oak Wilt Disease—a bacterial disease, exasperated by air pollution and high Carbon Dioxide levels in the air and spread by insects that live in the trees’ bark.

With your help, Mannam Volunteer Association will wrap over 600 dying Oak trees with a special biodegradable film, that will not only save the trees infected with the disease, but will prevent further spreading.

Please join us as we hike up the mountain together whilst enjoying Bukhan Mountain’s fresh air and beautiful surroundings. The Nature Conservationists of Bukhan Mt. National Park will demonstrate a step-by-step process of how to wrap the trees and provide further information on Oak Wilt disease as well as the surrounding area of Bukhan Mt.

All contributions are welcomed, whether it is in time, donations or both. For those who wish to volunteer on the 21st, please email your full name and contact details to with the subject “Bukhan Mt field trip.”

Our goal is to have at least 500 volunteers to wrap 600 affected trees in celebration of Earth Day 2012.

For the volunteers, be sure to wear comfortable hiking clothes and proper shoes for the event. An extra pair of scissors would be helpful though equipment will be provided by Bukhan Mt. National Park.

There is no better time to give back to Mother Nature than on Earth Day itself.

DONATIONS: A total of 2,000,000 won is needed to buy special biodegradable film for wrapping 600 trees.
Please make your donations to the bank account: IBK 305-060799-01-017 (Account holder: Mannam) with ‘Your name, Bukhan Mt’ (ex. Tom Smith, Bukhan Mt).
