Cranberry season - 2018: information for responsible nature users
This fall cranberry collecting will be allowed in the buffer zone of Polistovsky Reserve from the 10th of September to the 1st of December within the designated areas in order to support traditional nature use by the local population.
It will be allowed to collect cranberries on the sites: Boltuhino, Yazvy, Usadba and Nesvino, while observing the rules of responsible nature use.
In order to preserve natural complexes, there are restrictions on the amount of taken berries - not more than 15 kg per person, and also on the use of mechanical devices of harvesting berries ("harvesters"), traumatizing the natural vegetation cover.
The administration of Polistovsky Reserve recalls that cranberry collection in the buffer zone outside the designated areas, as well as on the territory of the Reserve is prohibited. Administrative and criminal liability is provided for violations of the environmental regime.
