Central Luzon State University (CLSU) of Nueva Vizcaya recently recognized the contributions of the university’s ecology projects as a valuable resource for hands-on learning.

A group of students, research assistants, and faculty from CLSU’s Department of Crop Protection visited the Bambusari Eco-park and Arboretum of the University where they collected insects and made observations on insect-host plant associations in forest and natural ecosystems on April 18-20, 2024.

The Bambusari Eco-park is a  cultivation area for 15 different bamboo species.  The Arboretum, on the other hand, is a hilly area developed and maintained by forestry students as a nursery for a diverse collection of plants and trees.

The ecology projects of QSU proved to be helpful not only in the environment but as a tool for real life instructional and learning experiences not just for QSU, but with other state universities as well. | QIO with President Hermenegildo F. Samoy, Jr.
