International Plant Fascination Day celebrated in Monchique

On May 18th of every year, the International Day of Plants is celebrated. This date was created in 2012 by EPSO – European Plant Science Organisation, to celebrate the mysterious and fascinating life of plants. From the smallest seed, the biggest tree is born, which feeds and shelters the most varied creatures. In this sense, the Municipality of Monchique developed a series of activities for the schools in this locality to mark the date. Among illustration workshops, tours along the Rhododendron Route and painting a mural dedicated to Life-Relict project, around 287 students had the opportunity to learn a little more about the beautiful and fascinating Rhododendron.
