Earth Day

Members of the U.S. Embassy in El Salvador, in commemoration of Earth Day, began a bicycle tour that started at the Anguiatú border and ended at the Amatillo border.

Before starting their tour, they left their green footprint by planting trees with the U.S.-funded Upper Lempa River Watershed Project. This project will plant a total of half a million trees to protect the health of the wonderful Lempa River.

During the tour, the cycling team visited many points in the country that have received support from the U.S. government such as: El Trifinio, the Anguiatú border crossing and the El Amatillo border crossing. In fact, they cycled over the entire Northern Longitudinal Highway, built thanks to funds donated by the United States.
