Our GS PHCC officers and grade school teachers of St. Paul University Dumaguete, successfully joined together in conducting Tree Growing and Geothermal Power Plant Educational Tour last September 14, 2019 at the EDC Southern Negros Geothermal Project location in Ticala, Brgy. Caidiocan, Valencia Negros Oriental.
The activity was attended by 33 parents and teachers and they were warmly welcomed by the CSR staff Mr. Julius Teves and Sir Arnel, the department’s forester, also led by our very own GS PHCC president, Mrs. Norreen Bautista who is also the head of EDC’s Community Partnerships, External Relations and Watershed Management Division. The activity started at around 8 AM, a short briefing was given to the group at the Ticala Conference Room (EDC office). Then the group went to tree growing activity in their hedge garden, a total of 48 pieces of Nato (Palaquim luzoniense), IUCN red list status as threatened species were planted. This was followed by the facility tour and lunch after.
Overall, it was indeed a fun-filled activity, not only did the group help beat the climate change and improving the quality of the natural environment, we were able to collaborate.
"Overall, it was fun, collaborative activity, not only did the group help beat the climate change and improve the quality of the natural environment but also got to enhance the camaraderie between teachers and parents."
