ICCEM personnel conducted a clean-up drive in the unit’s Conservation Parks on July 29, 2022, in preparation for the tree planting activity.
Botanical Park is sectioned into aromatic, herbal, ornamental, phytoremediator and flowering plants. Native plants are being conserved in BINHI Conservation Park.
These areas were cleared up in preparation for the tree planting activity to commence after the Thrift for Trees: Pa-live para sa Kalikasan live selling activity.
Mr. Daryl Juganas, Sub-unit Head of Environmental Conservation, actuated the maintenance of these parks, through the help of the ICCEM employees, to continue the conservation and protection of the different plants in the conservation parks, and to encourage the sustainability of the environmental efforts and initiatives of the institution. Dr. Annie Melinda Paz-Alberto, former ICCEM Head, initiated this conservation park.
ICCEM personnel and other CLSU staff, enjoined by Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) students, hiked approximately 3 kilometers at Mt. 387, Brgy. Puncan, Carranglan, Nueva Ecija today, June 30, 2022, to plant 100 seedlings in celebration of the World Environment Month. The hikers, in cooperation with Kalinga sa Kalikasan ng Puncan (KAPUNCAN) headed by Mr. Roy P. Manuzon, started at 6:30AM. One hundred different native trees such as banaba, duhat, narra, and molave were planted. The “Thrift for Trees: Pa-live para sa Kalikasan” initiated by ICCEM and supported by the CLSU community, funded the tree planting activity by successfully raising an estimated amount of P13,000, sales and donations combined. With the theme “Aksyon para sa Natatanging Mundo” and the hashtag #OnlyOneEarth, this endeavor is a strong call to encourage more people to participate in the annual celebration of June as World Environment Month. Meanwhile, the adoption of the area to become CLSU-ICCEM Forest Park is being discussed with KAPUNCAN to ensure the sustainability of the #100TreesForWorldEnvironmentMonth.
This year marks the 90th anniversary of the establishment of Protected Areas in the country. On February 1, 1932, RA 3915 was passed into law, which is An Act Providing for the Establishment of National Parks, Declaring Such Parks as Game Refuges, and for other purposes.
Did you know that the first established protected area in the Philippines is located in the heart of Central Luzon? Mount Arayat National Park became the first national park in the Philippines established on June 27, 1933.
YoPA or Year of Protected Areas is an initiative made by a joint declaration by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), through its Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB) and the Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN) of the United Nations Development Programme Philippines and in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT), and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). This campaign aims to promote protected areas (PAs) under the National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAS) and coordinate with other agencies at the national and local levels to ensure effective conservation and sustainable management of national parks nationwide.

CHED-funded project titled, “Formulation of Nutrichips for Disaster Resiliency”, is spearheaded by Dr. Evaristo Abella, Dean of the College of Science. It aims to come up with a nutritious-packed food, utilizing locally abundant raw materials (mushroom, moringa and seaweeds) that can be consumed before, during and after calamities. This project is in collaboration with the Institute for Climate Change and Environmental Management and College of Home Science and Industry and the Pangasinan State University Binmaley Campus. The Municipality of Anda was chosen as the pilot area because of its abundance in seaweeds.
