Foresters of the Forest District Wymiarki know how important it is nowadays to educate and develop social awareness, especially among children.
To shape the awareness, two educational trails were created, where one can have a nice time and learn basics of forest knowledge and forest work. All that, with benefit for one's health.
The educational trail "Przy Stawie" (By the pond) was opened in 2007 right next to the headquarters of the Forest District. The trail encompasses many educational boards presenting various forest-themed matters, a grand shelter and a wonderful garden with many trees and shrubs from our forest. Nearby, there is a pond, where many species of birds find shelter in the rushes. On the trail, there's also a place marked by stone plaque, where "Dąb papieski" (Papal oak) has been planted.
A two kilometre-long forest and education trail "Przy Wiacie" (by the shelter), located in the Wymiarki Forest Rangers Areas in a natural forest ecosystem. The trail starts at the road leading from Wymiarki to Lipna. You will find a shelter where you can rest here (photo no. 4). Fourteen themed stops have been organised on the trail leading through a beautiful old pine forest. Each of the stops presents information on forest ecosystems, forest management and the work of foresters aiming at protection and preservation of natural resources.
The sites are open all year round, Monday to Friday between 8.00 and 15.00. For availability outside opening hour, please call 0048 68-360-40-06.
Currently we are cooperating with Fundacja "Bory Dolnośląskie" foundation in creating horse riding trails. Because of educational tables and billboards placed in interesting spots around the Forest District, the trails will combine recreation with education.
Year in, year out the employees of the Forest District play an active role in developing the awareness of students from nearby primary schools by introducing the children to theoretical as well as practical parts of our work.
We organise forest-themed multimedia presentations and film screenings.
We invite you to see our forestry equipment shows.
We organise various competitions.
We believe that only through a good cooperation between Lasy Państwowe (State Forests) and the public, and through the right attitude of the society it is possible to achieve all the current goals of the Polish foresters.
