Around 50 students, faculty, staff and members of the management of the University of Baguio (UB) have conducted a weeding activity at the Busol Forest Reservation last April 28. 

 

 

The weeding is the first in a series of environmental outreach activities in the area scheduled to be carried out by the University in celebration of UB’s 70th founding anniversary this year. A tree-planting activity is set to be conducted in June.

 

 

Dr. Romer D. Tanyag, UB’s outreach director, added monitoring will be done after the tree-planting. 

 

 

UB adopted the Busol watershed as one of its priority areas under its environmental conservation plan. The Busol watershed, located between Baguio City and La Trinidad, Benguet, is a major recharge area of the water sources for Baguio, La Trinidad and the surrounding municipalities. 

 

 

The activity was held in coordination with the Baguio Water District.
