Green Belt best project in 2020

The amount of green vegetation planted out in the locality; the construction of a nice wooden terrace with scenic viewpoint; the number of participating volunteers and involved organizations; and the charming scenery of Muránska planina. That is why the project „Terrain information office“ in Muránska planina in the saddleback Burda has won the title of the Best project in the programme of  Green Belt in the year 2020.

The unique Terrain information office National Park – Muránska planina was reestablished in the western part of National Park – Muránska planina – Fabova grassy upland and the saddleback Burda in the year of 2015.

Volunteers could have carried out various mantainings of green spaces in the surrondings of the information offices thanks to the this year successfull project in the programme of  Green Belt.

Moreover they could have build a new turistic scenic viewpoint thanks to the close cooperation of the National Park Muránska Planina, Municipal Forestry Institute Tisovec, foresters from Forests of the Slovak republic Závadka nad Hronom; also students from grammar school Tisovec; families and friends from surrounding villages.

„Volunteers have planted out the  total amount of 150 trees of Rowan and European Larch trees. The trees have been protected with a net in order to protect them against wild animals chewing them off  and against animals destructing the wigs with their antlers.  Morever the net will be used to protect another twigs when the trees grow up.  Volunteers also have constructed a nice wooden terrace with panoramic viewpoint to Muranska Planina, Low Tatras, Klenovský Vepor. This big effort cost volunteers nearly 470 worked hours, says Milan Hronec, who has been the Project manager of the programme Green Belt for fourteen years. On 19th September 2020 the respectable performance  and the fantastic result of the volunteers´work and the involved organization was shown to the public.

The civic organization Nová Burda has won the title of Top project 2020 and prize money to the value of one thousand euros. On Friday 19th December 2020 we awarded them online via social media of Ekopolis Foundation.

We warmly congratulate for  the excellently implemented project of the civic organization Nová Burda.
