The Season of Creation is the annual Christian Celebration to listen and respond together to the Cry of Creation". This year's theme is "Listen to the Voice of Creation", our common prayer and action can help us listen for the voices of those who are silenced. In prayer we lament the individuals, communities, species and ecosystems who are lost, and those whose livelihoods are threatened by habitat loss and climate change. In prayer we focus on the "Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor".

Furthermore, a tree planting activity follows as part of the celebration of Tourism Month. An encouragement and reminder to the community to be good stewards of God's creation that is "Protecting the environment and nurture God's gift not only for ourselves but for the future generations", and motivate people to shoulder the responsibility to eliminate environmental destruction and injustices connected to global climate change.

Present in the activity were members of the Bolinao Falls Association (BFA),Barangay Council of Tupa, Barangay Council of Samang Norte and other community volunteers.
