Pushing for environmental concern as one of its core flagship programs, 4H Club Cagayan Valley launched its first-ever Regional Synchronous 4H Tree Planting Activity, July 10, 2019.

Enthemed "Para sa Kinabukasan: Plant, Love and Nurture Trees, " 4H Club officers, members and volunteer groups from different local chapters gathered for one-day filled with trekking, fitness and tree-planting activities.

The participants successfully bedded out more than 750 seedlings at the end of the day. It is expected to increase as different local chapters will still conduct the activity the following days.

The regionwide tree-planting effort is just one of the lead ship programs of the 4H Club Regional Federation. This is the first time the federation initiated an environmental cause that is aimed to happen every year. This initiative is hopefully a sustainable project of 4H Region 02 as the organization believes that agricultural-reliant groups should do their part in giving back to the environment.

The event was organized and spearheaded by ATI-RTC 02, 4H Club Regional Federation Officers, LGUs especially 4H Club Coordinators and VLAP and Municipal, Barangay and SK Official.

Since the reformation of Regional Federation Officers with the guidance of ATI RTC 02 few years ago, 4H has championed other endeavors alongside with this green-cause movement such as the Sensing Journey with the Indigenous People which was pioneered last 2018 and the recently concluded launching of 4H Learning Hub in Region 02
