Grades 3, 4 and 5 pupils of Macanaya Elementary School and Minanga Elementary School in Aparri, Cagayan actively participate in the Environmental Education Lectures conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 2 in partnership with Community ENR Office of Aaparri on July 22, this year.

The 150 students who participated were taught on the status of environment in the Philippines and also the threats to nature which include different human activities such as illegal logging and dumping of wastes to rivers. They were reminded to practice solid waste management since they are within the vicinity of the Apagonan River which is currently being rehabilitated.

Coloring books and other informative materials were distributed to the students during the lecture.#
