On April 25, 2021, on the territory of the Volgo-Akhtubinskaya Poima natural park, an action "Plant a forest" was held with the support of Sberbank as part of the creation of the "Southern forest belt of Russia"

In the area of ​​the village of Morozkino, Sredneakhtubinsky district, volunteers of the interregional environmental public organization "EKA", employees of the natural park "Volgo-Akhtubinskaya Poima" and simply caring Volgograd residents planted 4,000 oak and maple seedlings. Arm yourself with shovels, buckets for watering, take seedlings and not forget a good mood: these are the main conditions for the participants of the "Plant a Forest" project.

There is a high probability that the five-year survival rate will be more than 30%, - says Roman Potolovsky, head of the EKA VRMEO.

The tree planting instructions were provided by representatives of the ECA environmental movement. They talked in detail about how to plant the seedlings correctly so that they will take root and grow.

“The Volga-Akhtubinskaya floodplain is the lungs of the Volgograd region. So that they do not die, they need to periodically help them, to plant them. Next year we are planning irrigation campaigns in which employees of the natural park, volunteers and people who are not indifferent to the forest and nature, will take part, ”says Natalia Lopantseva, director of the Volgo-Akhtubinskaya Poima Nature Park Natural Park.

For participants who could not get to the work site on their own, a transfer from Volgograd was organized. After the end of the action, a field kitchen was waiting for all its participants.

Observations of the survival rate of plants will be recorded by the staff of the natural park during monitoring. For the Volgograd region, the Volga-Akhtubinskaya floodplain performs the most important ecosystem functions, including the creation of habitats for plant and animal species listed in the Red Data Books, and also serves as a regulator of the atmospheric air in the cities of Volgograd and Volzhsky. Therefore, in order to preserve the Volga-Akhtuba floodplain and transfer natural resources to future generations, forest restoration activities must be carried out now!
