PRESENTATION OF THE BEAVER AT THE 2023 CRANNOG DAY
On Saturday, August 26th, 2023, you are invited to join us between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Crannog Day in Draga pri Igu!
The organizers wrote as follows: Crannog Day is a one-day event where visitors try out a wide variety of skills typical of crannog makers through workshops. We will also prepare an accompanying program (performances, archaeological and other lectures). The workshops are divided into archaeological workshops, where the main content is archaeological, from finds to the interpretation of archaeological finds, to experiential ones, where participants, based on their own work and experience, gain knowledge about life in the time of the crannog makers, and nature conservation workshops, where they get to know the fauna and flora of the Ljubljana Marshes and the Draga valley today and in the time of the crannogs.
THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 10th, 2023, YOU ARE INVITED TO GET TO KNOW THE BEAVER AND THE OTTER AT THE CERKNICA LAKE!
Various LIFE projects are presented by the Cerknica Lake under the auspices of the Notranjska Regional Park in May and June: LIFE for SEEDS, LIFE Stržen, LIFE Beaver, LIFE Amphicon and LIFE Lynx.
We presented ourselves for the first time on Saturday, May 27th, and we will present our activities for the second time on Saturday, June 10th, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., at the picturesque location opposite the Visitors Info Center of the Notranjska Regional Park, in the immediate vicinity of the Rešeto manholes.
Children are especially welcome. We are preparing a series of activities and interesting educational content that will enable them to delve deeper into the world of nature and have fun at the same time. LIFE BEAVER project collaborators present our largest freshwater mammals, the beaver and the otter, their biological and ecological characteristics, differences and similarities.
