One with the rest of the country on this special day, LLDA participated in the 119th Philippine Independence Day festivities led by the DENR. With the theme “Mga Pamahalaang Programa at Serbisyo,” the celebration gathered the different bureaus and agencies, including the DENR and LLDA, in the two-day exhibit held at Burnham Green Rizal Park, Manila.

From soulful artwork by local painters to interactive stations wherein you could wear native costumes and take photos beside military tanks, the exhibit/event delighted guests with its fun and educational activities.LLDA also took the opportunity to inform visitors of its current programs and efforts in protecting Laguna Lake and its surrounding regions.

On June 12 Independence Day, bringing more prestige to the occasion, Vice President Leni Robredo and DFA Sec. Alan Peter Cayetano graced the ceremonies and took part in the flag-raising and wreath-laying activities.
