Save trees on Bukhansan | Sunday, April 29
We mentioned this Mannam International event in the last Weekender, but it sounds like they were hampered by the rain. Since the weather is warming up, the virus that is killing the trees will spread more quickly, so Bukhan National Park is rallying for a second try this Sunday, April 29th. Visit Facebook for more information.
