BAROBO, Surigao del Sur -- The Philippine National Police (PNP) and student and out-of-school youth organizations have united for a Tree Planting and Clean-Up Drive activity dubbed as "Valentine’s Treat for Mother Earth” in Barobo town, Surigao del Sur on Saturday, February 12. 

The personnel of 1301st Maneuver Company, Regional Mobile Force Battalion (RMFB) 13, Surigao del Sur 1st Provincial Mobile Force Company under the supervision of Force Commander Police Lt. Col. Ephraim MegreΓ±o, in partnership with the Barobo National High School Youth for Environment Organization (BYESO), Supreme Student Government (SSG), and Barkada Kontra Droga (BKD), have joined the said activity.

Forty tree seedlings were planted at Barobo National High School (BNHS) Forest Park, with each participant planting a seedling during the event. Part of the event was also the Coastal Clean-up Drive conducted along the shoreline in Bay-bay 1, Barangay Dap-dap. 

In his message, PLCol MegreΓ±o emphasized that they will continue to support the youth advocates in their platform especially when it comes to nature conservation.

“The youth of today's generation will be the next stewards of God's masterpieces. Celebrating Valentine's Day with Mother Earth only shows that our future leaders really have a heart of gold. Supporting their advocacies is also shaping them as role models of the society,” the official said.

Meanwhile, through their efforts and participation, each participant was able to express their love to nature, aimed to help its rehabilitation and beautification process for the benefit of the future generation. (NGPB/PIA-Surigao del Sur)
