Forest Month 2011

 

Plant a tree and within you a green patch

 

Forest month, 15 March – 15 April, has been celebrated by the Administration of the Măcin Mountains National Park (AMMNP) in collaboration with the "Grigore Moisil" High School in Tulcea, the Tulcea County Council, Măcin Local Council and Luncaviţa Local Council.

 

If last year, AMMNP and the "Green Peace" project members from the "Grigore Moisil" High School in Tulcea have celebrated Forest Month by planting seedlings on a field near the Secondary School in Cerna Commune, this year we have maintained this tradition, but changed the location.

 

Thus, the event took place on 27 April 2011, in the close vicinity of the natural park, below the Copcealău Peak in the Pricopan Heights, on a 2,500 m2 land provided by the Măcin Local Council.

 

148 people participated, of which: 80 children from the "Grigore Moisil" High School, 30 employees of the Tulcea County Council, 20 locals from Luncaviţa, 6 employees of the Măcin Local Council and the 12 employees of the Măcin Mountains National Park.

 

2,000 local species seedlings were planted: hornbeam, flowering ash, maple. The Administration of the natural park has rewarded this effort of children by awarding them tourist maps, guides and diplomas.
