CDORBMC EMBARKS ON SEEDLING PRODUCTION TO HELP PREVENT FLOODING

Cagayan de Oro City.  To help prevent flooding in the city, the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council (CDORBMC) is establishing a nursery at the back of the Archbishop’s Palace here.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 and the CDORBMC formally opened the nursery  as part of the celebration of Earth Day 2017.

The nursery is a brainchild of the chair of CDORBMC, Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma.  He offered the area at the back of the Archbishop’s Palace as the site for raising tree seedlings for distribution to parishes.

During the opening program, Archbishop Ledesma was represented by Ada Estepa of the Ecology Desk of Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro.  She said “the earth is crying and there is a challenge for us to be responsible stewards of God’s creation.”

Once fully developed, the nursery is envisioned as a Center of Learning for Environment, wherein organic garden and sustainable agriculture will be practiced. Groups can learn and experience the environment at the CDORBMC Nursery, Estepa added.

For his part, DENR 10 OIC, Regional Director Edwin B. Andot called on the people to do their share in protecting and conserving our natural resources and environment.  He said the DENR 10 will continue to assign personnel to provide technical assistance in the maintenance of the nursery.  The nursery is beside the Cagayan de Oro River.

During the opening of the nursery, personnel of DENR 10 including from the Provincial and Community Environment and Natural Resources of Misamis Oriental potted seedlings of veviter grass.  Seedlings of  lambago, narra, cranberry and other tree seedlings can be found at the nursery. 

A ceremonial cutting of ribbon marked the opening of the CDORBMC Nursery with Regional Director Andot, Ada Estepa, Father Saturnino Lumba of the Social Action Center of Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, Dr. Rosalina Huerbana of Safer River Life Saver Foundation, Inc. and Community Environment and Natural Resources Officer Myrna Neri of Initao, Misamis Oriental.

The Earth Day activities held on April 21, 2017 include a Laudato Si Symposium with Rev. Msgr. Florencio Salvador, Jr. as resource speaker, Holy Mass at St. Augustine Cathedral and motorcade around the city. The Environmental Management Bureau, Region 10 spearheaded an Alay Lakad while the DENR 10 conducted a Lambago Planting at Sitio Cala-cala, Macasanding, Cagayan de Oro City.

Earth Day is celebrated every April 22 as a way to  honor our planet and to reaffirm environmental commitments.
