Pangasinan civil servants plant trees
Lingayen, Pangasinan (15 September) -- The Civil Service Commission Field Office here spearheaded on Wednesday a multi-agency tree planting activity around the parade grounds of the provincial police office.
OIC-Director Lyrma Oalin said the activity was one of the highlights of the 110th anniversary celebration of the Philippine Civil Service which aimed to promote care for the environment.
About 50 fruit-bearing trees and 150 forest trees were planted by volunteers from national, regional and provincial line agencies, state colleges and universities (SCUs), government owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs), and the provincial government.
Last September 7, CSC Lingayen also staged a coastal clean-up along the shoreline of Lingayen Gulf.
Romulo Nabua, Senior Personnel Specialist of the field office, thanked Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. for supporting CSC in its environmental advocacy programs.
Aside from providing manpower, the provincial government also gave other support like the provision of litter bags, garbage truck and seedlings sourced from the provincial nursery.
Marivic Caburao, a Public Administration student from PSU and one of the volunteers said, "Malaking karangalan na makasama sa activity na ito para na rin makatulong sa pangangalaga sa kalikasan."
This year's Civil Service Anniversary Celebration carries the theme "In the R.A.C.E. to serve: Advancing responsive, accessible, courteous and effective public service." (PIO/PIA Pangasinan/dos) [top]
