We kindly invite you to the final seminar

We are happy to invite you to the final seminar of the LIFE project Restoration of Raised Bog of Aukstumala in Nemunas Delta Regional Park”. The project helped to improve hydrological situation in the bog, which is known as the first scientifically investigated bog in the world. More than 1000 different type of plastic, peat and composite dams were built to retain water within the bog; more than 100 ha of wooded vegetation and shoots were cleared to stop evaporation and bring the bog back to degraded areas. Even in short period of 2 years we can see the impact of the actions. New educational path and observation platform were built for visitors, now, everyone can enjoy the fantastic view over the dystrophic lakes.
