We are proud to announce that the South European Regional Meeting of IFSA for 2017 will take place from 23rd to 30th April in Bulgaria, and in particular the Student’s Club for Environmental Protection, was given the chance to host the event. We chose to get you acquainted with old- growth forests for which Bulgaria is still one of the last shelters in Europe.
The old-growth forests are a natural reservoir for genetic material and a zone for tranquility for many species, whose existence is solely dependent on the forests themselves.
The main goal of the meeting is to show these Bulgarian riches and at the same time, to enrich the knowledge of the students from forestry majors and other nature sciences, through extracurricular activities and exchange of practice.
In order to present to you some of these forestry treasures we will take you on a one-week trip through different climate areas, from one fairy tale forest to another. You are going to enter a long forgotten world of old beech, spruce, chestnut and plane forests. You will have the chance to see some of the ‘sexy old ladies’ of the Bosnian pine. And all of these gathered in only one fifth or Bulgaria’s territory.
