Pilar, Bataan—The Department of Natural Resources (DENR) in Bataan led by Penro Raul Mamac and some volunteers planted bamboo trees along the easement area of Almacen Riven, Hermosa and conducted cleanup in the mouth of the river area on Friday.
“It was World Bamboo Day and next day was International Coastal Cleanup Day,” said Mamac.
“We cleaned up 12 hectares silt containment area at the mouth of Almacen River which is part of Brgy. Pulo, Orani,” he added.
The body of Almacen River passes Hermosa town.
Cenro Rommel Suba of CENRO Dinalupihan and staff joined the activities.
Mamac said officials of the Hermosa Water District also participated in the bamboo planting and coastal cleanup. He said they limited the participants to the cleanup activity this year due to Covid 19 pandemic.
DENR Bataan with provincial government leads the annual ICC in September here, usually in full force.
Mamac has vowed to fully support all the pro-environment initiatives of Gov. Abet Garcia.
