Jockey Club Smart City Tree Management Project

Sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, we are thankful that our "Jockey Club Smart City Tree Management Project” already marched into the second year with lots of support from the community. During the coronavirus outbreak, since February, we have launched a weekly writing contest for our secondary school students with an aim to promote nature conversation and enhance their knowledge on trees. Further, a drawing contest was launched in April to celebrate Earth Day and promote urban forestry. Citizens from all ages were invited to join this meaningful event. Whilst the pandemic is still in place, our Community Talks and Field Trips would shortly commence again in July, tentatively. Further announcement would be made via our Project Facebook. Please like and follow to get our first hand news!
