Environmental Week
COLOMBO: October 1 to 7 has been declared as an environmental week by the Ministry of Environment which has set apart October 4 as National Tree Planting Day.

A press release issued by the Government Information Department said the National Tree Planting Day will be observed by implementing tree planting programmes at all District Secretariat Complexes, Divisional Secretariat areas, selected environmental villages and 6,000 school compounds.

The Environment Ministry has arranged to issue 100 plants free to each school under this programme.

These plants can be obtained from the Range offices of the Forest Conservation Department nearest to the school.
