NPC-WMD through its Angat Watershed Area Team together with the Bantay Watershed Task Force (BWTF), LGU of Barangay San Lorenzo and National Power Corporation High School conducted a Joint Clean-up Drive and Tree Planting activity in Hilltop Barangay San Lorenzo, Norzagaray, Bulacan in July 27, 2017.
The planting activity was conducted in compliance with Circular Order No. 2016-018 or the Goodness for Mother Earth (G4Me) Program wherein it encourages NPC personnel to plant at least eighty (80) trees to neutralize their carbon emissions and also in order to rehabilitate/re-vegetate the NPC-managed watersheds. A total of 1,360 seedlings were planted. About 1 hectare of kaingin site in Tailrace, Sitio Bitbit, Barangay San Lorenzo, Norzagaray Bulacan were planted of Dipterocap species such as Guijo (Shorea guiso), Kalumpit (Terminalia microcarpa), Dao (Dracontomelon dao), Rain Tree (Samanea saman) and Balobo (Diplodiscus paniculatus).
Afterwards, a regular meeting with BWTF volunteers followed. The meeting aims to assess/evaluate the BWTF programs and action plan for the management and protection of Angat Watershed Reservation Area.
