This partnership will help us sustain our goals to preserve or better yet improve the condition of Baguio City’s remaining forest covers,” Royeca said adding the protection of the city’s watersheds require a collective effort from all of its stakeholders.

Royeca said the renewal of the MOAs will ensure that the water utility will be able to sustain its task in protecting the watersheds under its jurisdiction.

The Lions Clubs commended BWD’s watershed conservation initiatives and committed to remain as partner of the program.

“We are thankful that we are able to continue this partnership with BWD, the Lions Clubs will persistently help in whatever way it can to support BWD and to help protect the City’s watersheds.” Ng said.

Through the MOA, which is effective for three years, the Lions Clubs renewed their undertaking as muyong holders in the various watersheds supervised by BWD, which include Busol, Buyog, Camp 8, and Sto. Tomas.

The Adopt-a-Watershed Program aims to preserve the watersheds in Baguio City through partnerships with government and non-government organizations, civic organizations, and schools through tree planting, nurturing, and other related activities like assistance in the prevention of forest fires, illegal logging, squatting, and kaingin.

Forty groups have committed to execute the same agreement with BWD.
