Groups, in these stops, will participate in educational activities and learn many new things about forestry, trees and animals in them, and also about sustainable management of these natural values. Demonstrations of forest fire safety and forest management technique, the wide range of wooden products made in Latvia and their use in world, and also children will be able to learn about the possibilities to study in specialities connected to forest industry. At the end of excursion classes will come together for a picnic around bonfires and fill their stomachs with lunch brought with them, and also will be able to buy hot food. And all of that – on the top of Sarkaņkalns, more than 200 metres above ground, in one of the most picturesque places in Rēzekne region!
