On April 11, the Synevyr National Nature Park hosted the ecological event, which was joined by park staff and willing adults and children of IDPs who are temporarily living in the park’s buildings now. Such measures are often taken at the facility to improve sanitation and the environmental situation in the region.

The main goal of the action is to remove garbage that has accumulated during the winter and make the environmental surroundings cleaner. Special efforts are aimed at cleaning the main waterway of the park – the river Tereblya. Garbage accumulated during the winter must be removed so that the environment does not absorb harmful substances from waste that can get into the water. After all, water reservoirs support the existence of a huge number of plants and animals, including rare ones, listed in the Red Book of Ukraine. Water is a great economic and recreational resource of the region, so it is important to take care of the environment.

It’s important that everyone gets involved in such an important action. During the ecological action, the territory was cleared of leaves and other remnants of wood origin near the administrative buildings of the park, river banks, recreational hospitals, visitor centers, temporary recreation areas, and other facilities. In total, the staff of the park, together with concerned migrants, removed more than 70 large bags of garbage from the roadsides and the banks of the riverbed.

The event was held in cooperation with the Interreligious and Environmental Civil Forum of Eastern Europe (IRCEF, headed by Alexander Bokotey) and the Ecological Commission of the Mukachevo Greek Catholic Eparchy on the project “Responsibility for Creation and Women of the Carpathians” implemented by IRCEF in cooperation with partnership support of the Archdiocese of Bamberg (Erzbistum Bamberg), the Diocese of Würzburg (Bistum Würzburg) and Renovabis (Organization for Assistance to Eastern Europe from the Catholic Church in Germany).
