Arbor Day Celebrations

15.04.2013

An Arbor Day was held in Vyoshenskaya, on April, 12. It was marked by an action of laying out a park of People’s Friendship organized by the Sholokhov Museum-Reserve, the Sholokhov District Administration, the Rostov Region Forestry Department and Committee on Environment and Natural Resources.

 About 7000 trees were planted. The future park to be laid out near the Museum Stable will be planted mainly with pine-trees which survive well on hilly sands. The members of the action also planted saplings of acacia, ash, calligonum,  eurotia , saxaul and tamarisk. The members of the children and youth ecological movement “Sholokhov’s Source” will look after the plants. About 100 movement participants from the Rostov, Voronezh and Volgograd regions, the Daghestan Republic and Ukrain took part in laying out the park.

The children and museum-workers were joined by the Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Rostov Region, V.N.Vasilenko, Director of the Forestry Department, A.N.Palatny, the representatives of the Rostov Region Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, M.V.Parashchenko, and the authorities of the institutions and offices of the Sholokhov District.

A.M.Sholokhov, Director of the Museum-Reserve, stressed, that the Arbor Day had become another good deed which joined many people. The work in the new park will take place in stages, and the unique forest will reflect the geography of the participants in the “Sholokhov’s Source” movement and the Museum partners in the environmental activities. The forest sites designated for the Rostov, Volgograd, Voronezh, Astrakhan regions, the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, the Kalmyk and Daghestan Republics, and the neighbouring foreign countries, Kazakhstan and Ukrain, have already been laid out.

As the “Sholokhov’s Source” movement expands, new trees will be planted in the new sites.
