Polistovsky Reserve held meetings with school children during the winter holidays
During the holidays, schoolchildren from Bezhanitsky and Loknyansky districts visited eco-educational meetings conducted by employees of Polistovsky Reserve. They got acquainted with nature and history of Polistovsky Area, played and made memorable souvenirs.
On the 6th of January, schoolchildren spending holidays in the village of Gogolevo gathered in the guest house of Polistovsky Reserve. They played acquaintance games, and then divided into teams and developed their own excursions around the village. The guys included the most interesting places, in their opinion, into their routes: both man-made (historical and modern), and natural objects, and their own favorite places in Gogolevo. The meeting ended with tea and conversation, during which the reserve staff told about the plans for the year and invited everyone to take part in the "Rodnik" summer ecological hike.
On the 9th of January, a lesson for schoolchildren was held in the ecological class of Polistovsky Reserve in Bezhanitsy. The guys discovered amazing secrets of the winter forest, got acquainted with the wintering birds that can be found in Polistovsky Reserve and the surroundings, and also tried their hands at making wooden trinkets with winter patterns.
Employees of Polistovsky Reserve will continue to conduct eco-lessons for schoolchildren even after the holidays in the ecological class in the settlement of Bezhanitsy. The schedule of its work will be updated on the website of the Reserve in the nearest future.
