Pacem Eco-Park was established by Assumption Antipolo to raise concern for the environment among students, teachers and staff, parents and visitors to the school, by providing them with an experience of the beauty of nature and the opportunity to reflect on the importance of ecological security to the survival of our planet. Situated within the campus of Assumption Antipolo, the park is a major component of the school environmental education efforts. It features an eco-center, a miniforest, a wildlife sanctuary, an aviary, a pond, and a butterfly garden.
PACEM Eco-Park promotes biodiversity through the operation of a wildlife sanctuary, which is accredited by Region IV (Southern Tagalog) office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). The wildlife sanctuary shelters endangered species: various species of birds, monkeys, wild cats and other animals of Philippine wildlife. When you enter PACEM mini forest you feel the solemnity and observe the majesty of Philippine Rainforest. The mini-forest is home to many Philippine endemic orchids that add beauty to the place with their magnificent flowers.
Assumption Antipolo is home to a large number of indigenous butterfly species. PACEM Eco-Park features a butterfly garden which houses various species of butterflies. TheButterflyGardenhas been envisioned as a laboratory where students can observe the unique lifecycle of butterflies, thus reinforcing the knowledge they acquire from books and in classrooms.
