Urban Greening is a city-oriented reforestation movement that would mobilize members of a community to plant native Philippine trees on campus. The main purpose of which is to reduce the effects of climate change to our existence. In this case, UNO-R is now starting the project where it mobilizes the members of the UNO-R community.
Under Urban Greening, “Grow-A-Heritage Tree” program in partnership with the Energy Development Corporation’s Binhi Program “Trees for the Future” is one of the strategies that UNO-R Urban Greening Program has adopted. On –going environmental education, trainings and conferences are also conducted on- and off-campus conducted by student volunteers.
Gracing the affair today are Rep. Cynthia Villar; DENR Asec. Marlo Mendoza; and other national and local officials. Coordinating the whole affair is the UNO-R UCDO office with its supervisor, Mrs. Mely Flores.
This makes UNO-Recoletos as the first Museum of Heritage Trees in Negros Occidental.
