Establishing safe paddle trails in Puerto Rico with a CFS Grant.

The Coalition for the Northeast Ecological Corridor is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2005 by volunteers and members of the communities of Luquillo and Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Each year they organize various activities to educate and promote the conservation and protection of this Nature Reserve.


Our CFS Project is a trash clean-up and wood debris removal along with branches trimming in some areas to ensure the stream flow of the Sabana River and also to gain access to a small lagoon on the center of the nature reserve.

For every activity and event, we use a volunteer sheet where everybody sign and put there information on it. With that information we collect the data of how many people where impact in that day and how many during the year, due to the fact that we have a co-management agreement with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources that everything that goes on the nature reserve need to be inform.

This Project will impact the community because of the importance of maintaining our waterways clean like the Sabana River, due to the fact that it is our community water resource.
