Mangaldan, Pangasinan, August 1 (PIA) – Despite the intermittent rains on July 29, members of the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) –Pangasinan Chapter did not falter from contributing in the preservation of the environment.
Dubbed “Oplan BroadcasTreeing,” the annual tree planting activity once again gained support of partners from the local government units, government agencies, and some private sector.
For this year, the ‘environmental champions’ planted about 2,000 seedlings of various deep rooted trees along Angalacan River in this town.
Mark Gemson Espinosa, chairman of KBP-Pangasinan Chapter, said it was the seventh time this year that the greening activity was held.
“The activity, which was simultaneously conducted by all KBP chapters nationwide, is in support to the greening program of the national government to counter the effects of climate change,” Espinosa said.
“Oplan Broadcastreeing” was previously held in San Manuel town in 2011, San Fabian town in 2012, along Pantal and Dawel River in Dagupan City in 2013, Bonuan Tondaligan Beach in Dagupan City in 2014, at the Manleluag Spring Protected Landscape at Barangay Malabobo in Mangatarem town in 2015, and at the Sobol village in San Fabian town last year.
