RESCATE DE PLAYAS BORINQUEN IS A COMMUNITY BASED STEWARDSHIP DEDICATED TO THE RESTORATION OF OUR OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL AREAS AND THE PROTECTION OF ITS NATURAL RESOURCES AROUND PUNTA BORINQUEN IN AGUADILLA PUERTO RICO.
We work around the areas of the Former Air Force Ramey Base which were transferred to the Government of Puerto Rico in 1973 by means of a Grant Deed.
The Grant Deed explicitly protects most of the natural areas (~642 acres) and designates them for public and recreational use. These lands are mainly under the jurisdiction of the Department of Parks and Recreations.
Sadly the area fell into serious decay; abandonment, overgrown fields, illegal dumpsters, hideouts for drug use and other illicit activities. Over the years Rescate Playas Borinquen created a nonprofit to reclaim these spaces. Our community of volunteers brought back the beauty of Punta Borinquen for the enjoyment of all.
Over eight years of your work has created a place that is accessible, safe and beautiful. We set up a baseline of what is possible and what we can accomplish, yet there is a whole lot more to do.
