Last May 20, the SLCM student council outreach committee led this year’s culminating Grand Outreach activity at the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA).
In partnership with the DENR-NCR, the activity aimed to look and give back to Mother Nature by cleaning up the coastal area. This was in line with their May-long celebration dubbed the “Month of the Ocean”. The activity initially included a mangrove planting activity but it did not push through because it was not the best time to plant them.
After the clean-up, the students participated in an eco-tour. This included a bird watching activity and a mangrove site tour. Based on the participants’ feedback and the experience itself, the incoming outreach committee decided to continue this tradition into the coming academic year.
