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.

In order to plan and include new tasks and to extend the timeframe of the monitoring period we initiated the extension of project.

We received the contract modifications today, thus the detailed habitat mapping, the removing chumps of the lake bed in Lake Kűvölgy #4, and the installation of the ultrasonic animal alarm system to protect dams can be started.

The closure of project has been modified to 31th December 2018.

Similarly to previous years, the progress of the project has been supervised.

Among others, we discussed the work we completed in the previous years, tasks to attend until the closure, the results we gained though tree-ring analysis, water wales, condition of dams, as well as the removing chumps, that was included in the second modification of contract.
