          Over 300 people from various agencies and sectors gathered for the launching of the bamboo project and Laguna Lake rehabilitation initiative of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) CALABARZON, held April 26, 2017 in Barangay Looc, Calamba City, Laguna.

      The event commenced with a ceremonial planting of bamboo planting materials along the shoreline of Laguna Lake, led by DENR Undersecretary for Administration, Finance and Management Demetrio Ignacio, Jr.

         “Ang bamboo o kawayan po ay ang pangunahing tanim ng DENR sa ilalim ng National Greening Program. Iyan po ang focus ng DENR in the next six (6) years sa pamumuno ng ating mahal na Kalihim Regina Paz Lopez,” Undersecretary Ignacio informed the audience.
