We invite you to fens’ workshop in Rospuda valley

We warmly invite you to participate in a two-day workshop devoted to the protection of alkaline fens, which will be held on 27-28th April 2015, in KUKLE Recreation Centre ,  in the Augustów Primeval Forest.

The workshop aims to explain the practical aspects of the implementation of projects related to the protection of peatlands in the context of their ecological diversity. We will talk and share experiences in carrying out activities in the field of active protection of peatlands, but also experiences in writing applications and obtaining external funds to finance the conservation of specific habitats. Our special guest speakers will present the aspects of the substantive assessment of grant applications and share their experience in LIFE projects. There will be also a little bit of  theory in terms of how the fens ought to be protected. We will present to you one of the most valuable alkaline fens in Poland and Europe – The Rospuda Valley. Why is this area so valuable? You will learn this at the workshop, and on the second day you will have the opportunity to personally see the indescribable beauty of the Rospuda Valley fens.

Details can be found within the workshops programme.
