ECO-V 8th anniversary
We proudly celebrated our 8th anniversary on the 7th of February 2009. However due to our busy schedules we had to wait until 1st of March to have our annual get-together. Last Sunday our members came to our office to participate in the annual “Thiresi Hamuwa”. Participants included Kalu Wandura Conservation project team, the Pelican Conservation project members and some of our pioneer members who formed External Action Committee of ECO-V seven years back. Harsha presented the progress of the Pelican project while Devaka briefed the Kalu Wandura project activities to the general membership who were present .I too presented the activities and achievement for past eight years and discussed the future activities of ECO-V including volunteers role in ECO-V. All were served with traditional sweets and tea after the meeting.Finally Ramyanath conducted a short guided tour to identify the wild flowers of Sri Lanka. This was highly appreciated by the members as it was a new experience for them. Everybody enjoyed the view of the Bird sanctuary while having tea on the top floor of our home.
