Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection in Szczecin within the framework of Active education offers educational kayaking. It is to be carried out in the area of Natura 2000 sites where the project Active protection of water-crowfoots habitats and restoration of wildlife corridor in the river Drawa basin in Poland is being realised: Lakes Czaplineckie, Drawska Refugium and Drawski Landscape Park.
The aim of educational kayaking is to enable participants direct and individual contact with Natura 2000 sites on which the project is being conducted; it will also allow them to familiarise themselves with some problems of water-crowfoots rivers as a habitat of a great natural value, which is extremely important also for the man. During these meetings we will also have an opportunity to observe wildlife river corridors. In addition, a competition for participants will take place during each kayaking. Meetings of those implementing the project with people interested in the subject of rivers’ protection will be also an excellent opportunity to present natural values and tourist attractiveness of Natura 2000 sites.
The first kayaking within Active education took place in 2015 on the river Korytnica. The report is on the project’s website. This year we invite you on the upper Drawa. The planned date is 9 September 2016. The kayaking will take place on the route Rzepowo – Złocieniec. The organizational details of the event will be on the website: http://drawalifeplus.rdos.szczecin.pl.
Due to the limited number of places qualification will take place according to first come first served basis.
Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
