ARAYAT — Over a hundred state workers from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here and partner agencies participated in a tree-growing event in Mount Arayat Protected Landscape (MAPL) in Arayat town the other day.

The event is in celebration of the Philippine Environment Month.

By virtue of Proclamation No. 237 signed in 1988 by then President Corazon Aquino, the month of June was declared Philippine Environment Month to raise environmental consciousness among Filipinos.

More than 1,200 fruit-bearing trees and bamboo propagules were planted in Barangay San Juan Baño in Arayat town through the DENR’s Enhanced National Greening Program.

The event was participated in by personnel from local government units, Philippine Statistics Authority and the 70th Infantry Battalion Delta Company.
