Do you like storks? We also do. Do you know that activities human is engaged in are harmful to white storks and this is why it is necessary to call for protection of this species? You didn’t know it? This is where the idea for this project came from. Grupa Ekologiczna from Siedlce is scheduled to run fantastic workshops between May 27th to 31st for Hołubla kindergarten children, Hołubla Primary School first and second graders and their parents and grandparents. The workshops will consist of a theoretic and a practical part, both full of knowledge, attractions, fun and laughter. The main goal of the workshops is to get children acquainted with Mr. Stork. Who is he? What is he characterized by? How can we take care of him? Mr. Ireneusz Kaługa, a lecturer, is going to talk about an organization he works for which has been monitoring the population of white storks in Poland. The workshops will take place in the morning hours in the village area and on the premises of Primary School in Hołubla. The project is financed from appropriations of the the Santander Foundation [Fundacja Santander].
