The Discover Dominica Authority says that International Mountain Day is an opportunity to create awareness about the importance of mountains to life, and to build partnerships that will bring positive change to the world’s mountains and highlands.
The Forestry, Wildlife and Park’s Division is leading the celebrations of Dominica’s mountains on Wednesday, and tells reporters it is necessary to educate persons on the significant contribution of mountains to the environment.
The Division will hold a hike to the Boiling Lake, a popular National Site, and hiking groups from across the country will join participants for the hike. Students from the Dominica State College will also take part.
