A group of youngsters gather every week near Red Hills reservoir, to plant and maintain saplings near its foreshore area. The Group also plans to plant 1,000 saplings to develop a green belt around the lake with the support of WRD. The drive started as a joint initiative to discourage garbage dumping near the reservoir, which is one of the primary drinking water sources of the city.
“We are sourcing about 1 lakh palm seeds to increase green cover along various water bodies, including Red Hills reservoir."
