Participate in LVM Open Forest Days!

atvertas meza dienas

Latvia is a country, who has always respected forest – we sing about it, we relax in it, work and, of course, we keep learning about it. This year as well, the JSC “Latvijas valsts meži” (LVM) invites all nature friends to register for participation in the Open Forest Days.

The Open Forest Days is an event cycle filled with traditions, which is organised with an aim to not only spend time in forest clean-ups, but, mainly, to promote deeper understanding of society about responsible and sustainable forest management. This year forest clean-ups, improvement of recreational places and forest planting works will take place in all regions of LVM.

We remind that participants have to provide their own transport to the location of the event, also snacks, work gloves and clothes suitable for forest. We also encourage to register for events in advance, because each region will have a limit to number of participants – up to 40 people, therefore, priority will be given to those who have registered first at the contact persons bellow.

Events dedicated to Forest Days will take place all year long. Already on the May 24 and 25 the LVM Nature Park in Tērvete will hold the largest forest industry event in Baltic States “Forest Days of Latvia”. During the large event youth and adults are welcome to participate in more than 80 forest education stops that will be provided by various organisations connected with forest industry and nature.

However, in autumn 6th grade students in all Latvia are invited to participate in the LVM Forest Expeditions, during which, together with knowledgeable forest industry experts, they will have a chance to get to know the full cycle of forest management, and also learn in what unusual objects wood can be found in.
