55th Tree Appreciation Walk in Aarey Milk Colony, Goregaon (E)

 
 

Our wandering feet landed us in a lovely nook, tugged away, where only the voice of the wind could be heard, in Aarey Milk Colony. Many surprises awaited us there…..a grove of Sterculia villosa, a tiny forest of Bamboo, few Surengi trees (Mammea suriga), flowering of Areetha tree, Behada & Bibla trees fruiting to their heart content, a lone Palshin climber (Spatholobus parviflorus). Among all these, a rock with a shape of Ganpati Bappa artistically painted by some devotee, gave us a feel of being landed up in one of the heaven on Earth. We invite you all to take a Tree Walk in this magical place with us on 14th December at 7.30 am.
