Lomovsky Park will be More Beautiful

20.04.2016

On April 18–19, the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov held a greening campaign in Lomovsky Natural Landscape Park of the Vorobyovsky District the Voronezh Region.

The Museum of M.A.Sholokhov has got a good tradition of holding greening campaigns which make for experience exchange, preservation and study in the natural and memorial landscapes. Today, there is hardly a museum-reserve on the map of Russia without lilac of “Mikhail Sholokhov” species brought from Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya. The Museum-Reserve workers joined the All-Russian campaign “Green Oak Grove” and contributed to restoration of the historical landscape in Kulikovo Pole by planting over 1000 oak seedlings; in the park of Krapivna (a branch of the Museum-Reserve “Yasnaya Polyana”) they planted sweet chestnuts grown at the estate of M.A.Sholokhov; in the family estate of I.S.Turgenev “Spasskoye-Lutovinovo” they took part in the reconstruction of the lilac alley; about 300 oak seedlings were planted to restore “Plotsky Verkh” laid by count Tolstoy; in the Museum-Estate of M.Y.Lermontov in Serednikovo there was laid a privet hedge; in the Museum Complex of M.A.Sholokhov in Kazakhstan there were planted Crimean pine alleys, and so on.

This time the museum workers of Vyoshenskaya, as a sign of strong friendship, laid a young pine forest on the area of 0.5 ha in Lomovsky Natural Park located on the area which is a natural monument of the Don Glaciation Era. The seedlings of catalpa, ailanthus, juniper and arborvitae were also planted.

During the planting campaign, “Sholokhov Sword” was used. It returned to its native Voronezh country with a good mission (the “Sholokhov Sword” was presented to Sholokhov Museum by Voronezh blacksmith masters).

Like a symbol of cooperation strengthening was the meeting of T.Y.Turchin, Deputy Director of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov and M.P.Gordiyenko, Head of the Vorobyovsky District Administration. During it some joint projects and ways to implement them were planned.
