Pantabangan-Carranglan Watershed Area Team (PCWAT) together with Pantabangan-Carranglan Bantay Watershed Protection Council, Inc. (PCBWPCI) of Barangay Burgos and Salazar and instructors and students of Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology (NEUST)-Digdig Campus conducted seedling dispersal and tree planting activity on July 4 and 22, 2017 at Zone 2 Barangay Burgos and NEUST-Digdig Campus Grounds in Barangay Joson, Carranglan, Nueva Ecija.
The said activities aim to provide seedlings for PCBWPCI members and local communities within Barangays of sector 1, 2, and 3. This is to rehabilitate the open-land areas owned by these local communities. Also, this aims to engage them in environment-related activities and make them as partners in conserving and protecting the Pantabangan-Carranglan Watershed Forest Reserve.
Overall, PCWAT distributed a total of three hundred forty (340) seedlings (180 Soursop and 160 Cashew) to Mr. Toradio Ladores, Councilor of Barangay Burgos and PCBWPCI official and to Ms. Annerie Maglanoc, Administrator of NEUST-Digdig Campus.
