The EMB-NCR joined the tree planting activity organized by the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LMRC) as part of its support to the Adopt-an-Estero/Waterbody Program of the said office last September 13, 2016 at the La Mesa Nature Reserve and EcoPark. LMRC, through “Live for the Rivers”, organized the activity to ensure proper management of forest resources to help recharge the water bodies that sustain life in Metro Manila. Participants trekked for almost an hour to reach the 2 kilometer tree planting site.
