Eco-event on St.Lazarus' Day

Apr. 16, 2011
An action for cleaning clean of the Veleka River Mouth Protected Area will be held on Saturday, 04/16/2011, with the participation of about 50 children from Tsarevo, students at the Nikola Vaptsarov School. The Veleka Mouth is one of the most beautiful and emblematic places on the Southern Black Sea coast, among the few remaining undeveloped oases of wilderness. With gloves and bags the children will clean the sandy “hair” (beach) to the mouth, and thus be included in the national campaign To clean up Bulgaria. The action is organized by the Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation in partnership with the Municipality of Tsarevo and the Strandja Nature Park Directorate and the Mayorship of Sinemorets will care about the collected garbage.

After the cleaning, the children will learn more about the Day of St. Lazarus, of course there will be surprises too – the organizers from BBF have prepared a quiz and fun eco-games. For most active there will be special prizes. All participants will receive magnets and stickers with rare plants and animals from Strandja, they will be supported also with sandwiches and fruits.

The action is part of the educational activities of BBF within the project: "Cooperation for biodiversity conservation and sustainable local development in Strandja”, which is supported by Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein through the EEA Financial Mechanism.
