      The Community Lake Monitoring Program was first introduced to the Municipality of Tanay on 05 June 2002 during the celebration of World Environment Day.  A Stakeholders Conference was held by the CLEAR (Conservation of Laguna de Bay's Environment and Resources) as part of the roadshow information campaign for the conservation of Laguna de Bay.

        The Tanay Environment Foundation readily accepted the challenge so that on 22 April 2003, coinciding the celebration of Earth Day, an Orientation-Training for the Community Lake Monitoring Network was conducted at the Tanay Municipal Hall. Attended by officers and members of Tanay Environment Foundation and representatives of various community organizations of the municipality, lectures on "What is Secchi disk and how useful it is in lake monitoring?" and on the procedure for water quality monitoring using Secchi disk were presented.  Field demonstration of sampling procedure was also conducted at the Laguna de Bay.
        On 05-07 June 2003, fifteen high school students from various high schools of Tanay participated in the Eco-Camp conducted by CLEAR.  Designed to raise the awareness of youth on environmental protection and sustainable development, particularly as it applies to Laguna de Bay, the campers had lectures and discussions, creative workshops, field work, fellowship and group dynamics.  To ensure their lasting commitment to the conservation of Laguna de Bay, the campers became a part of the Community Lake Monitoring Team for Tanay, Rizal.
