LINGAYEN -The Civil Service Commission (CSC) urged state workers and the public to take action and manifest their concern for the environment before it is too late.
“When will we start giving our own little way in preserving the environment? It should be now, not tomorrow,” Director Flordeliza Bugtong of CSC-Lingayen field office told civil servants who participated in the mangrove planting activity held recently at Barangay Malimpuec here.
The greening event was spearheaded by the CSC in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to mark the culmination of the monthlong celebration of the 116th Philippine Civil Service anniversary in September.
Some 2,500 mangrove propagules or bakawan were planted by officials and employees of various national government agencies, local water districts, local government units and members of the academe to fortify the watershed in the area.
For the part of DENR, Leduina Co, provincial environment and natural resources officer, said she was grateful to all state employees who attended and spent their time to plant mangroves that would help sustain the environment.
Yong ginawa ninyo ay isang pagmamalasakit at pag-aalay para sa ating kalikasan at sa bayan,” Co said as she encouraged people to plant in their respective homes as their share to preserve the environment that will later have a positive ripple effect.
To ensure that the mangroves are grown and not just planted, a covenant was signed by all the participants committing themselves to visit the mangrove site to help in monitoring the trees’ survival rate. (PIA-1, Pangasinan)
