The first autumn project in the GBT history has recently finished. It was unusual project not only because of the season. Usually the GBT volunteers build trails but this time volunteers took part in clearing a water-spring in Idiba Valley on Olkhon Island.


In August on the territory of Pribaikalski National Park the GBT led the project “The Trail to Sandy Bay”. The project united volunteers from Irkutsk, Omsk, Moscow and Saint Petersburg, China and Germany.


Great Baikal Trail’s northernmost project, nearby the Severobaikalsk at our trail between the Slyudyanskie Lakes and Ludar Bay, has just finished!


The 4th GBT project "In the Wilds of the Khabar Daban" was completed on August, 8; in which 10 volunteers from different cities of Russia (Arkhangelsk, Nizhnevartovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur), as well as from the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, the USA and Norway took part.


Our pilot art project finished on July 23! Hurray-hurray! It was a new and interesting experience for GBT where 12 volunteers from Irkutsk, Moscow, Voronezh, Saint Petersburg, Germaby, France, and Australia took part!


On July 11th, our hardworking volunteers completed the two-week GBT project “Pillars of Davsha”. The project took place in Barguzinsky Reserve, the oldest federal reserve in Russia, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of its founding this year.


Great Baikal Trail crew leaders Roman Chubakov and Roman Mikhailov recently underwent training at a weeklong boot camp for volunteer firefighters. From June 30th to July 6th, volunteers from all over Russia learned how to extinguish forest, peat, and grass fires.


Today the first project of this summer has started! The first in the season was traditionally the children's and youth ecological project "In the Wilds of Khamar-Daban", which, as always, takes place in the wonderful Baikal Nature Reserve.


In the end of May, Natalya Ivanova, Sofya Kotselyabina, and Roman Mikhailov, representatives of the Great Baikal Trail, visited Olkhon Island where they got acquainted with local springs which need upkeeping, clearing, and landscaping.


On May 23-24, Natalya Ivanova and Roman Mikhailov, representatives of the Great Baikal Trail, took part in a broadcast filming about volunteering on lake Baikal by NTV (Cyrillic: НТВ).
The filming took place in the territory of our partners, Baikal Nature Reserve, where GBT has as many as three projects planned.
