December 11 was International Mountain Day. I would like to write more about the importance of mountains (every day I look up at them from our city), and this year’s theme is quite interesting. Meanwhile, the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park – Jamaica’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site – will celebrate its 25th Anniversary on February 25, 2018. Between now and then, there is a special family friendly Christmas celebration at Holywell this coming Sunday, December 17. Enjoy!
The Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust (JCDT), manager of the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park (BJCMNP) launched the 25thAnniversary of the Park on Monday 11th December 2017, celebrated as International Mountain Day. The event was staged at the Altamont Court Hotel from 3:30pm. The 25th Anniversary of the National Park will take place on February 25th, 2018.
