15th anniversary of Muraviovka Park

The fourth of July 2009, marked the 15th anniversary of Muraviovka Park. Muraviovka stands as a model of conservation and education in a region where it is truly needed. I encourage all of you to log onto and read about the rich history and founding of the park. A celebration was held on this date, but beforehand there was much preparation by the park staff and volunteers to get the grounds ready for the guests. In particular, a large artistic patio that overlooks the wetlands was constructed.

After all the preparations of the park were finished it was time to get ourselves personally ready for the celebration!

The celebration, which was held from 10:00 – 4:00, included speeches by founder Sergei Smirenski, Park director Marina Kalodina, and Jim Harris of the International Crane Foundation as well as songs and dances from several local musicians and artists.
