In line with this year’s World Migratory Bird Day, we have planned a fair in order to provide information and increase awareness on the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats.

Routes of spring: geese festival

At least 45 teachers and youth from St.Petersburg will visit farmlands in Olonets region during the time of geese spring migration stop-over to look at the outstanding natural beauty of this site.

The spring aggregations of geese and other migrating waterfowl species on the Olonets fields are the largest in Europe. The reasons for this are the rich forage that vast farmland offers, and availability of overnight shelter on Ladoga Lake and nearby wetlands.
