With a backpack along the trail

The work on the preparation of an educational project “With a backpack along the path” continues in the framework of cooperation with the Lake Baikal Foundation.

This project is interesting because it allows us to conduct classes with children even within the city – in groves, parks, or the Botanical Garden.

The main results of the project should be: drawing the attention of the educational staff to the need for eco-lessons, addressing to the problem of animal and plant protection in the strategically important region of Russia where Lake Baikal is located, which is experiencing a strong human influence as a result of the development of mass and chaotic tourism, trampling, illegal fishing and other negative consequences.

At the moment, using the grant of the Lake Baikal Foundation, we have prepared and introduced into the project a course two new employees who will conduct projects with children in the city of Irkutsk, as well as field classes in the Irkutsk and Slyudyanka districts, in the village of Tankhoi (together with the Baikalsky Nature Reserve) and in the city of Severobaikalsk (together with the municipal organization for youth education and public organization “Youth Federation of Buryatia”), with the support of our coordinator in the North of Baikal, Eugene Maryasov.
