On April 26, 2021, a large-scale tree-planting campaign took place on the territory of the Volgo-Akhtubinskaya Poima natural park. Together with the residents of Volgograd, they planted more than 2000 thousand saplings of pedunculated oak and maple.
“More than 60 people, not indifferent to the fate of the region, divided into teams and shared responsibilities. Someone was responsible for the water, someone for the seedlings, and someone for the preparation of the land. Everyone was involved, and thanks to the general involvement, we managed to plant all the seedlings without a trace! " - coordinator of the project "Plant a forest" in the Volgograd region Roman Potolovsky
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!
