CCB and Lekgolobotlo Primary School Environmental Education club are in partnership to establish an environmental biopark that will be beneficial for the school and community at large. A tree planting day took place on the 25th April 2014 at the school. There were 27 trees planted in total, of which 5 were donated by Mokolodi Nature Reserve and 22 by Gaborone Forestry and Range Resources department. The Lekgolobotlo village Headman was the first person to plant a tree, followed by the Managing Director of CCB, then the Village Development Committee chairperson. After the official opening the students and their teachers got to work. The students were divided into groups and assigned a tree to care for. The simple act of planting a tree, helps the environment in so many ways, among them trees filter pollution from the air, help recycle water, prevent soil loss, create shade, provide homes for animals, make food for humans and wildlife and provide an interesting, soothing, learning environment for children and the community.
