|Yours truly taking the time to have a picture taken as we walk to the reforestation area.|
This Tuesday, our volunteer placement supervisor took me and two of my teammates to an agro-forestry and reforestation area in Brgy. Canawa in Candijay, Bohol. It was a long walk from Canawa barangay hall to the agro-forestry farm, but the journey was worth it with the sights we saw, and the knowledge shared by our companions. The trek made me realize how successful reforestation projects in Bohol have been. Twenty years ago, the areas we've trekked on were grasslands! Currently, reforestation projects are being done in the Municipality fo Ubay, and I'm hopeful that the local and provincial governments, in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, will succeed in their good efforts to make Bohol even greener than it is now.
Here are some pictures me and my teammates have taken during the trek and in our short stay in the Carood Watershed Model Forest Office for rest and lunch.

We started the journey at 0700H and we (me and my teammates) went back to our host homes at around 1500H. Hopefully we can come back as we're thinking of organizing an activity in the area before we leave Bohol on July.
