Upon the start of the project, we provided local farmers with essential information such as the objectives and the planned task. In November 2018, we also briefed them on the completed tasks and results.

We included the chump-removing of the Lake Kűvölgy 4# in the second modification of contract that creates an opportunity to hold greater mass of water. Now the places of the chumps can hold enough water even at low water level that fish and amphibious species can survive and birds can find food.

The lowering of the lake was completed; chumps were removed and cleared away early in October. The intended goals can be achieved after filling the lake again. 

We are organising a community meeting and press conference 14th November 2018, before the closure of the project. The event is to be held at the Eco-Centre where we invite all who are interested.

We have handed in a new report to the Commission in which we detailed the event of the last 1.5 years.

The documentation of the report can be accessed below.

The Water Management Department of the National Forestry Association has visited Kaszó. We had the opportunity to make our guests acquainted with the work we had completed within the KASZÓ-LIFE project to improve the general health status of forests. At the beginning of the meeting we made a presentation on forestry and the projects we had undertaken. Visiting the fields, experts inspected a water wale as well as the work we had completed at Lake Bükk, in Kűvölgy and at Lake Baláta.

 

Between 5th August and 10th August a forestry camp was organised by KASZÓ Ltd. Pupils who are interested in nature and particularly in forests could take part in the camp.

During their stay they could get acquainted with forest environment, animals, and forestry. Their knowledge was broadened through presentation of tools and other occupations in the field. At the end of the week Mr. László Horváth took student to a guided tour to the restored Kűvölgy Lakes - which were renewed in the framework of the KASZÓ-LIFE project - to provide pupils with information on forestry and other related professions such as environmental protection and the importance of hunting. While walking along the “Erdőkerülő” education trail pupils could see the work that was done during the implementation of the project.
