II Projects Meeting “LIFE NATURA” took place on the 3rd and 4th of December in Smoleń near Pilica. The host of the meeting was Silesian Voivodeship Landscape Parks Complex.
A few dozen of people from all over the Poland came to Smoleń to discuss the problems of finances, merits, reporting, persistence and accounting of LIFE projects. Implementers of the projects with different levels of advance could exchange their experience. During debate we could take advantage of advice of Mr. Stanisław Tworek – Monitor on behalf of the European Commission.
On the second day there was a field trip presenting realization site of the project LIFE11 NAT/PL/432 “Protection of valuable natural non-forest habitats typical of the ‘Orle Gniazda’ Landscape Park”. We have visited sheep and goat grazing site at Olsztyn near Częstochowa and have seen effective conservation of semi-natural dry grasslands and scrubland by these animals.
