SRWAT Leads Interagency Tree-Planting Caravan
The Philippine Environment Month may have passed, but the San Roque Watershed Area Team under the National Power Corporation, continues to ?connect to nature? by spearheading a series of tree-planting activities.
Some 2,000 seedlings of forest and fruit trees composed of Narra, Mahogani, rattan, and jackfruit, among others were planted in the watershed reserve area on June 16, July 5, and July 8 this year. Said tree planting activities were participated in by the San Roque Power Corporation, Philippine National Police, Philippine Coast Guard, NARRA Incorporated and two government Secondary Schools ? Mataas na Paaralan ng Juan G. Laya and San Felipe Integrated School.
SRWAT Section Chief Mendel S. Garcia shared that growing a tree is a call of duty from everyone as we all owe mother earth. He also lauded the continuous active participation of the participants especially the men and women in uniform, who are always in attendance in all activities conducted by the office.
?Maraming naitutulong ang puno sa atin tulad ng malinis na hangin, pagkain, at ari-arian. Sana lumaki ang mga tinanim namin. Gusto rin naming balikan ang aming tinanim pagkatapos ng ilang taon,? said James P. Nanali, a student leader.
Upcoming tree-planting activities are also set with San Nicolas Elementary School and barangay local government units.
