On the 25-27st of September Dzūkija National Park and Čepkeliai State Nature Reserve administrations have organized a camp for students to know fungi. The Project was sponsored by Varėna district municipality. 8 students from Varėna region schools and gymnasiums took part in it. Young scientists’ camp was organized for the fourth time. The purpose of the camp is to stimulate the interest in nature and our environment, to deepen practical knowledge in it and to learn about nature in nature. This year participants have deepened their knowledge in „mushroom kingdom”.
Dr. Reda Iršėnaitė from Nature Research Centre helped us to widen our knowledge and we would like to say special thanks for her. She has produced unique posters that illustrate the amazing world of fungi.
After the camp the students have demonstrated what they have learned about mushrooms in the traditional mushroom festival in Varėna.
We hope that this project will be continued and next year we are planning to organize similar camp to deepen students’ knowledge in other ranges of Dzūkija National Park‘s and Čepkeliai Nature Reserve‘s nature.
