SPPI supports Marikina River Forest Park

The ICCP Group’s Science Park of the Philippines Inc. (SPPI) participated in the ceremonial launch of the Regional Development Council (RDC) Forest Park at the Upper Marikina River Basin Protected Landscape (UMRBPL) in Antipolo City, Rizal. The UMRBPL is a protected area in the Province of Rizal that forms the upper area of the drainage basin of the Marikina River. The launch, which also marked the celebration of Philippine Arbor Day, was highlighted by a tree planting activity through adoption of the selected site of UMBPL at Sitio San Ysiro. The reforestation activity is a collaborative effort of DENR IV A-CALABARZON and RDC that aims to intensify protection and sustainable management of forest, watershed and prevention of disasters on the Marikina River Watershed area.
