LOGSAC SHOWS ONE HEART, ONE LOVE FOR NATURE DURING HEART’S MONTH
February 19, 2010 marked as the 3rd Foundation Anniversary of the Local Government of Sta. Cruz Adventure Club. And perhaps the most worthy and commendable way to celebrate it is to give an indulgence to Mother Nature. Our activity was called Nature Treat, a mangrove growing activity within the compound of Tajos Beach Resort, Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur. After which we had a very good get-together, a reunion of sort knowing that other members already have different life spots due to career and marriage. It was a party over bottles of drinks and “inato” servings.
“I just hope this group will continue to take efforts to save the environment,” said Jonas, LOGSAC’s Vice President. “While we recognize that camaraderie and friendship are among the reasons why the club was formed last 2007, it is also very important that somehow we will be bonded by the love of nature which is the basis for our passion to adventure.”
Some 300 mangrove propagules from the Municipal Agriculture Office were evenly planted. The occasion was graced by visiting mountaineers from Inawayan called CAMOC and some TRIMMOC Sta. Cruz Chapter members. Very Special thanks are also extended to Police Inspector Rudy Tajos, the owner of the resort who was very kind to us during the activity and even participated during the planting. Inspector Tajos reiterated support to the activity by saying that he will personally monitor the seedlings so that a higher survival rate would be attained.
“Not everyone has the passion of doing this…Congratz LOGSAC pepz! Let’s continue saving our Mother Earth,” said Chicay, one of club’s pioneering members.
After the mangrove planting and lunch, everybody was fused at a little venue of the resort to share some good points about everything under the heat of the sun. We had trips of music and, yes, beers…..Bob Marley was one of the subjects, photography was another and laughter was, as usual, on top of it all.
And when others started to strangle of the beer spirit, one song had outmaneuvered our senses, it said “One love, one heart, let’s get together and feel alright.”
Our Nature Treat was our own humble way of environmental advocacy, to show LOVE to the nature, to show love to all the people occupying respective places on earth, to show love to the next generation who eventually are landlords of the environment we are living right now.
