Last July 8, 2017, Bukidnon Green Warriors heeded the call of Pinoy Mountaineer for National Mountain Cleanup 2017. Bukidnon Green Warriors is an unofficial group of mountaineers who share the same passion of nature trekking. These trekkers also share the same sentiment on mountain commercialization resulting to littering, vandalism and other irresponsible acts by climbers and picnickers.
the suggestion of fellow eco-warrior, Kris Tala, Bukidnon Green Warriors
chose Mt. Capistrano because it is the most commercialized mountain in
the province. Even climbers from other places can say that this mountain
is very much abused. Trash are everywhere. Vandals ruin the beautiful
rock formations at the summit.
participated the event including members of CDO Trekkers, Tribo
Matigsagol, Hindu Kaw Outdoor and other freelance climbers.
event started at 5:00 am. Activities include picking trash and removing

Nasuli Spring Resort for fellowship.
