Conservation and management of the natural environment

We implement thorough pickup of trash, carry out beautification activities to create an atmosphere that discourages littering, prevent erosion on mountain trails, restore devastated natural vegetation, eradicate invasive foreign plants such as Rudbeckia laciniata (cutleaf coneflower), and protect valuable fauna and flora through patrols.
