RECAP: Guam Green Growth Conservation Corps week nineteen
Last week was all about island beautification for our G3 Conservation Corps!
Roland Quitugua, UOG’s Landscape Committee member and an Extension Agent with UOG’s Cooperative Extension and Outreach, taught the Corps how to properly plant and mulch guasåli and weed out the crotons lining UOG’s campus.
The Corps then propagated the crotons that they pruned, which will be used for future campus beautification efforts. They also bush-cut along the entrance of UOG, water-blasted and painted the latte’ stone sculptures in the middle of the campus, and rebuilt the broken planter boxes overlooking Pago Bay. It was a busy week!
Finally, the Corps ended the week with island beautification in Inalåhan where they picked up trash on the roadsides and painted the long guardrail on the main road.
Si Yu’os ma’åse’ to UOG’s maintenance team for providing technical support and to Inalåhan Mayor’s Office for hosting us!
We’re now down to the final weeks of our first G3 Conservation Corps! Stay tuned to see what they do next.
