We are pleased to invite you and your organization to participate in the forthcoming Makiling Trekathon on 30 April 2011 (Saturday) 6:00 am at the Makiling Botanic Gardens, College of Forestry and Natural Resources, University of the Philippines Los Baños, Laguna.
Makiling Trekathon is a component event of the centennial celebration of the establishment of Mount Makiling Forest Reserve and the 101st foundation anniversary and alumni homecoming of the College of Forestry and Natural Resources, UPLB. The event is also an observance of the International Year of Forests this 2011.
Makiling Trekathon aims to advance information and advocacy campaigns for the conservation of Mount Makiling being a scientific reserve, an important biodiversity conservation area, a critical watershed and airshed, a significant geothermal energy source, and a key ecotourism site. Through the event we hope to generate funds for the rehabilitation of the Mariang Makiling Trail that was damaged due to heavy rains in the past four years.
Enclosed is the Makiling Trekathon event description together with a registration form. For further information and registration, please contact Ben Arizala at the Makiling Botanic Gardens, by telefax no. 049 536-2637 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
