Interaction with the Community

At El Potrero Reserve we are convinced that ideas are strengthened when we are able to broaden horizons and involve different sectors of society. That is why we work together with local organizations and institutions to promote and develop projects with a positive impact, not only related to environmental conservation but also with social purposes.

We develop training courses and workshops in different productive activities and accompany some of the community institutions collaborating in some of their projects.

Working together

These are some of the main works carried out during these last years with different sectors of the local community.
