Cagayan de Oro City (14 May) -- The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) presented to officials of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources the plaque recognizing Mt. Kitanglad Range Natural Park in Bukidnon as an ASEAN Heritage Park.

The award was presented by ASEAN Deputy Secretary General Dato' Misran Karmain to Environment and Natural Resources Undersecretary Demetrio Ignacio during the launching of the International Year of Biodiversity in Makati City recently.

DENR Regional Executive Director Maximo O. Dichoso along with Regional Technical Director Belen O.
