TRIBU BULUSANON CONDUCTS TREE PLANTING & INFORMATION CAMPAIGN PROGRAMS
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
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.
