The results of the autumn volunteer campaign in the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve are summed up. “Days of good deeds” are gaining growing popularity as an alternative form of corporate entertainment and ways to unite the team. In the autumn there were several volunteer groups in Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve, whose members study or work together.
September 29th the pupils of the Odintsovo branch of Moscow Economic School in collaboration with the students of the “Skolkovo” high school worked in the vegetable storage of the Bison Breeding Center. October 1th the Moscow office of pharmaceutical company “Eli Lilly Vostok SA” took the initiative of Global Day of Service (one of the largest one-day volunteer initiatives in the world). More than 70 employees participated in the painting of fences, planting trees, clearing the area around the vegetable store. October 16th a group of students of the course of the “Business Youth” school took up the cleaning of Turovo highway roadsides from perennial deposits of debris. After the work of all the volunteers were able to admire the majestic inhabitants of Bison Breeding Center – bison and buffalo, as well as learn about the history and characteristics of this unique island of wilderness.
Nearly a hundred volunteers, who visited the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve in the fall, provided invaluable assistance to the staff. Construction of vegetable store is nearing completion, painting over the main part of the kennel fence on the tour route, planted 50 saplings of willow. The reserve collective expresses gratitude to the volunteers and invite them to visit again – enjoy the results of their labors.
