The Aklan State University nestles at the foot of the majestic Manduyog Hill which is naturally blessed with a cool and green environment. Given this rare privilege there is a concerted effort among students, employees and the community to protect its rich natural resources and preserve its spiritual and cultural endowment. One initiative of the University is to perform tree-planting activities.
The school has established seedling banks which serve as a repository for different species of trees. Another project is the Science and Technology Farm prioritising the conservation of native animals. An Organic Farming Systems Laboratory was also conceptualised, designed to produce organic crops and vegetables.
