Sumario:
The University of Costa Rica set a small patch of remnant forest in the San Ramon region to preserve the Humid Premontane forest. We surveyed the knowledge and appreciation that the inhabitants of the region have about the forest. We applied two surveys to 237 individuals aged between 8 and 70 years. Most people know the location but few visit or consider the forest beneficial. We recommend improving this aspect when managing the forest.
