Devalsari

The Devalsari Environment Protection and Technology Development Society was set up to promote conservation and livelihoods through ecotourism and bee-keeping in Uttarakhand beginning with the Jaunpur region .

ABOUT THE SOCIETY

In the words of Arun Prasad, the biggest problem in Uttarakhand is “playen” wherein rural populations are abandoning their homes to shift to towns and urban areas abandoning traditional practices of agriculture. The primary reasons for “playen” are reduced returns from agriculture and livestock, lack of job opportunities in the villages, poor education and health care.

THE SOCIETY’S OBJECTIVES

Nature tourism

More than 2,000 nature lovers have visited Devalsari in the last few years, to enjoy the area’s forests, the birds and butterflies, the wing blowing through your ears, and peace and tranquility of the Himalayas.

Trained guides

Kesar Singh, from Moldhar village, is a trained and experience nature guide, who specializes in birds, butterflies and trekking. He is currently the lead resource person for the CEDAR/Titli Trust 24 month nature guide-training program in the Mussoorie landscape.

Devalsari Titli Utsav

The society holds the Devalsari Tilti Utsav every year in the summer months of April to June. Three butterfly and moth meets have been held at Devalsari so far.

Beekeeping

The society hopes to revive bee-keeping as an alternate livelihood in Uttarakhand through honey production, promote bee conservation and improve productivity of crops, horticulture and forest produce.
