On 14th June 2014, Whitefield Rising is organizing a tree-planting drive along the shores of Munnekolala Lake. Read more about the restoration of this lake here.
As Arvind Keerthi from Whitefield Rising says,
What is exciting about this drive is that it is a confluence of efforts made by the BBMP Lakes Department, which is supplying the 600 saplings, private sponsorship from United Way of Bengaluru, which is funding the equipment and materials, and of course our beloved volunteers, who coaxed the process along, and will supply the calories needed to plant the saplings.
If you love planting trees, or like to spot-fix (i.e., beautify) your neighborhood, or want to see painted storks flying over Munnekolala Lake, this is the perfect Saturday morning workout for you.
