Meeting with pupils of Ecological and Biological Center of Pskov
On the 1st of April, at the International Bird Day, Polistovsky Reserve employees participated in a meeting with pupils of Ecological and Biological Center of Pskov.
About 30 children came to the Center despite of the school holidays in order to learn something new about nature conservation, raised bog and the activities of Polistovsky National Nature Reserve.
First, Svetlana Nikitina – employee of ecological education and interpretation Department of Polistovsky Reserve made presentation for the guys. She spoke about nature and history of the protected area, important ecosystem functions of raised bog, about who is working in the Reserve, and of course about Polistovsky eco-routes for tourists.
Then the guys watched a slide show of Polistovsky Reserve photos acquainting them with spectacular bog views and representatives of protected flora and fauna.
Then director of Polistovsky Reserve Mikhail Yablokov talked to the guys. He showed meeting participants one video about the inhabitants of the Reserve and one more video shot from quadcopter flying over the bog expanses. Then he answered children’s questions about nature and work of Polistovsky Reserve, about where you need to study to find a job here, how to come to the excursions, and others.
All who came to the meeting expressed interest in the Reserve’s activities, asked very important questions and showed erudition, answering the questions of Polistovsky guests.
The meeting ended with an exchange of gifts: pupils of Ecological and Biological Center presented birdhouses made on the International Bird Day to the guests, and Polistovsky Reserve employees brought some information brochures and small gifts for the children.
We thank all who attended the meeting, and especially employees of Ecological and Biological Center, organized the event, and invite everyone to visit Polistovsky!
