On the occasion of the Forest Week on April 13, “Youth and Civic Initiatives in the Rose Valley”, Karlovo, held another eco-action. The initiative this time was to clean the “Byala Reka” eco-trail near Kalofer, which is a very famous and preferred route among mountain lovers.

The eco-action was held together with the Central Balkan National Park Directorate and Kalofer City Hall. The young people participating in the initiative planted trees at the entrance to Kalofer, donated to them by Gorata.BG, after which they cleaned up the waste on the way to the eco-trail. Unfortunately, the ecoreactors found whole bags of waste in the bushes by the road, but the situation on the ecopath itself was much better. We hope tourists will follow their good example and keep nature clean.

Forest ranger Ivan Naydenov from the Central Balkan National Park Directorate introduced the youth to the history of the national park, its biodiversity and the importance of its centuries-old beech forests, which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The eco-action is part of the “Young Ecoreactors” project, supported by Vivacom regional grant 2023, under which the young people provided a forest first aid kit and signs for the national park with an appeal to tourists to keep nature clean.
