Plantation Trail Boards
The Plantation Trail is in the Southern Restoration Site on Diego Garcia. This is an area where native trees are being restored and the coconut palms, that have taken over and prevent any other kind of tree from growing, are being removed.
This forest trail takes people through the forest and past these information boards that tell them more about the environment, flora and fauna that they see.
