TRIBU BULUSANON CONDUCTS TREE PLANTING & INFORMATION CAMPAIGN PROGRAMS

Pursuant to its mission of saving, protecting and maintaining the rich natural environment of Bulusan and the willingness of its members headed by its officers to pay tribute in return to the abundant resources that Bulusan is still experiencing, Tribu Bulusanon implements the first priority project on information campaign through establishment of information billboard promoting clean and green.  This project is implemented in key areas such as: Bulusan Lake, Agingay Lake and an additional proposed site, the Bulusan River (source and banks). These sites were chosen with appropriate considerations and pursuance to the local government campaign in promoting ecosystem in Bulusan and also to inform tourists, mountaineers, and hikers on the potential hazard of improper garbage disposal. 

             Likewise, due to increasing demand on saving our watershed areas and to limit forest denudation, the organization, with some technical support from the Municipal Agriculture Office and the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (which also provide the planting materials), conducted a massive tree planting activity within the vicinity of Bulusan Lake last February 15, 2003.  170 seedlings of mahogany and 15 seedlings of pili were planted considering their versatility and adaptability to the topographical conditions of the selected areas.  The organization believes that this minor undertaking, although limited to some extent due to the group’s current financial status, is yet another step forward in realizing its dream and vision of promoting awareness and responsiveness among fellow Buluseños especially on environment-related issues.
