    Boricorps is currently participating in the biggest mangrove restoration project of the Unites States. JBNERR received a visit from the subsecretary of Comerce, Don Graves, who spoke about the importance of the project and the funding it has received. You can read more here.

    Nicole Pillot (Field coordinator) and Paula Arceres (Crew leader), spoke about their experience and how the project was going. The visitors had the opportunity to visit the nursery site. There the propagules are set in a tub until they star sprouting leaves, then they are places in a pond where they will get the chance get accustomed to the tide changes. After a few months, the mangroves will be planted at different sites of Pozuelo.

    Let's take a break from talking about work to talk a bit about history, or rather living history!

    Like many places of historical value in the U.S. Puerto Rico counts with its own groups dedicated to living history. Now, for those new to this, what is living history?

    Living history is a type of job and/or hobby that involves roleplaying as a person from a specific historical period. It often involves the usage of period appropriate tools, clothing, accessories, etc. Sometimes, knowledge about a specific trade is sometimes required, shoemaking and blacksmithing as an example. People who work in this field also usually do some form of interpretative work, guiding visitors through the life of a person of that era.

    As stated previously we have our groups here in P.R. they specialize in the colonial period and do frequent activities here in El Morro (most involving the shooting of cannons). Anyone interested in observing these events can do so by checking El Morro's Facebook page often, where they announce the coming events.

    WIth most of our main tasks completed, our crews are focusing on the little tasks around the park; picking up trash in the field and in the trail behind el Morro, de-weeding the projects, and mowing the lawn. As well as maintaining the now joint Projects 25/26 and 29/30 which require a bit of attention due to its size.

    In any case the work is going smoothly! I'll keep you updated on any events!

    This last weekend Boricorps travelled to San Germán to aid in the clean up of the Buffalo farm, which was affected by the passage of hurricane Fiona. Boricorps also helped in the harvesting of coffee beans. Like our mission states, our crews keep extending a helping hand to the devastated communities of our island.

    As our crews work on the green areas of the fort, I wanted to give you guys a little update on the cannon conservation project! 

    The cannons were unharmed during the passing of the hurricane and now they are ready to continue the conservation process. These couple of weeks we've been working on the Ballista (one of the bronze cannons in El Morro), by coating it with clear lacquer so that its protected from the weather and brine of the environment.

    This process will take another week or so to complete and then we'll be ready to move the Ballista back to the fort.

    Our projects were miraculously unharmed during the hurricane which allowed us to continue our work without much trouble.

    Our crews have gone back to working on projects 25/26 so as to unite it with project 29. So far, the upgrades given proved effective as the berms constructed guided the hurricane's rain towards the drainage system effortlessly.

    More updates as we progress.

    Its been over a week since Fiona went through the island and the effects are still very palpable. Our crews are aiding the effort by helping volunteer organizations in their tasks of restoring communities and donating to those who suffered the most during the event.

    If anyone is interested in helping the island, check our Instagram page, where we show how or where you can help.

    Today, we prepare for the storm Fiona which is expected to approach sometime this weekend. Our crews are doing their best to mitigate any damages the areas might take as a result of the event.

    We'll update about the status of the projects when we return next week.

    With the first term now completed, Boricorps welcomes its new crew members!






    Our organization is now stronger than ever and, alongside them, we'll keep making P.R. a better place for everyone.
