The National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB), Regional Branch No. XI conducted another milestone as we visited our adopt-a-site project at Mt. Talomo-Lipadas Watershed, Mt. Apo Natural Park at Brgy. Manuel Guianga, Tugbok District on October 12, 2017.   This is part of Green Our DoLE program (GODP) of the branch.

 NCMB-RBXI Personnel took the road trip going to the DCWD Brgy. Manuel Guianga Field Office. From there, we hiked to Mt. Talomo-Lipadas Watershed Rehabilitation area where we also planted fifty (50) lawaan red seedlings.  The site was 6 kilometers away from the DCWD Brgy. Guianga Field Office. It was quite tiring but a very fulfilling experience knowing that we have contributed in our own little way to preserve our forest.  Likewise, communion with nature relieved us from stress away from the hustle and bustle in the office and in the city.
