Forest for children
Лісові ініціативи і cуспільство
On November 15, the ForestCom NGO held a meeting with students of the school of Artasiv village, Zhovkva district, Lviv region. Our expert Taras Kharachko introduced students to his “Forest for Children” curriculum.
A lesson "Helping birds we help ourselves" was held at school. Children of different ages learned a lot of new, interesting and useful things. So now they all know the following:
- what are the benefits of birds;
- which birds winter in Ukraine and why they do not fly to warmer regions;
- which birds migrate closer to humans in winter and why;
- what can and should be fed to birds;
- how to create a garden for birds with all the necessary conditions;
- how to make a feeder well.
In addition, we invited students to take part in a competition for the best photo of feeding birds in winter. The students were interested in this idea, so now they want to create a feeder themselves to invite birds to their own garden.
We look forward to the photo report of the participants!
