On 14 October, the day of celebrating the 50th anniversary of Arborist Day, the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov jointly with the Novocherkassk A.K.Kortunov Engineering and Reclamation Institute of the Don Agricultural University held a relay-quiz “Forest Tier” for senior schoolchildren. It was joined by the teams from Novocherkassk, from the Rostov, Voronezh and Volgograd regions.

The preliminary stage took place in Novocherkassk this April. 10 teams from Novocherkassk, Taganrog, Stanitsa Grushevskaya of the Aksai District took part. The winners came to Vyoshenskaya to take part in the final stage of the relay-quiz.

The children successfully passed the test. While preparing and taking part in the “Forest Tier” they learned more about forest and acquired primary skills and abilities necessary for an arborist.
