April 2013 (April 2013) / I Ecological activities in the Ovčar-Kablar Gorge / Ekološke akcije u Ovčarsko – Kablarskoj klisuri


I           HANDING OUT LEAFLETS AND CLEANING UP THE GORGE

We have learnt that mountains and rivers are formed by nature and that these geological processes last for centuries. However, we have noticed some unusual mountains being formed quite often – ‘rubbish mountains’. We had to react accordingly. We have made leaflets to remind drivers how to behave while travelling through the gorge since it is an area under the state protection of the first category. In cooperation with the Tourist Organisation of Čačak and the Road Policing Unit, we handed out leaflets to the drivers who pulled off the road. Their responses ranged from approval and support to complete disregard. At the same time, other members of the team cleaned up four lay-bys by the side of the main road, thereby setting a good example of how to save space for nature. Here is an important message for drivers and all of us: We must not let ‘rubbish mountains’ grow around us!
Local TV station Galaksija informed the citizens of Čačak about our activities in their news programmes.

I        PODELA LIFLETA I ČIŠĆENJE KLISURE

Učili smo da planine i reke stvara priroda vekovima. Ali, primetili smo da sve češće oko nas “niču” drugačije, neobične planine. “Planine od đubreta”. Morali smo da reagujemo. Uradili smo liflet za vozače, kao podsećanje kako da se ponašaju prolazeći kroz klisuru kao zaštićeno dobro I kategorije. U saradnji sa Turističkom organizacijom Čačak i Saobraćajnom policijom delili smo zaustavljenim vozačima liflete. Reakcije su bile različite, od odobravanja i podrške do ignorisanja. Uporedo smo ( drugi deo tima) na četiri lokacije duž magistralnog puta kroz klisuru očistili zaustavna mesta od otpada  i tako i primerom pokazali kako da ostavimo više prostora prirodi. Poruka vozačima i svima nama: Ne dozvolimo da „planine od đubreta” niču pred našim očima!
Lokalna TV Galaksija je u informativnoj emisiji objavila prilog i izvestila građane o našoj akciji.

II ERADICATION OF INVASIVE PLANT SPECIES

In order to preserve indigenous plant species, we had to eradicate an invasive plant species (tree of heaven, Ailanthus Altissima), which jeopardizes the survival of native species. In the gorge there is a campsite, around which we cut tree of heaven and tried to stop its colonization; we employed a biological method (aqueous solution of sugar) and we feel quite hopeful that ants will respond. We are deeply grateful to the Tourist Organisation of Čačak, especially to Goran, Mara and Gavro for their generous help. We are going to eradicate another invasive plant species soon.

II UKLANJANJE INVAZIVNE VRSTE

Kako bismo sačuvali naše autohtone vrste, morali smo da pristupimo uklanjanju jedne invazivne vrste (kiselo drvo) koja ugrožava opstanak domaćih vrsta. Na lokaciji oko Auto – kampa u klisuri izvršili smo seču kiselog drveta i biloškom metodom ( vodenim rastvorom šećera i nadamo se, reakcijom mrava) pokušali da zaustavimo najezdu ove biljne vrste. Pratićemo rezultate. Veliku pomoć dugujemo Turističkoj organizaciji Čačak, a posebno Goranu, Mari i Gavru. Uskoro uklanjamo još jednu invazivnu vrstu.

III  WE SHOULD PROTECT NATURE FROM FOREST FIRES

Last summer this area was hit by huge and fierce forest fires. They caused widespread devastation and havoc. Charred trees were left behind. Some organisms disappeared. These forests will not be green for a long time. We visited a damaged site – a forest in Vidova, in the Ovčar-Kablar Gorge, where we were advised how to behave and educate other people about forest fires. We are extremely grateful to experts – Mr Belošević from ‘Srbijašume’ and Mr Petrović from the Sector for Emergency Situations Firefighters –Llifesavers, who demonstrated immediate procedures for extinguishing a fire. When charred trees have been cut down, new trees will be planted. We will join the action in autumn. We have arranged that we will plant trees in our schoolyard and in the places where we eradicated invasive plants. We have been given seedlings by ‘Srbijašume’ and advised about suitable locations by the Tourist Organisaition of Čačak. We are grateful for their having absolute trust in us.

III ZAŠTITIMO PRIRODU OD POŽARA

Tokom prethodnog leta naš kraj se suočio sa požarima velikih razmera. Ostala je pustoš, ugljenisano drveće, iščezli organizmi. Dugo ove šume neće imati zelenu boju. Posetili smo jedno od ugroženih mesta, šumu u Vidovi, u Ovčarsko – Kablarskoj klisuri, gde smo dobili uputstva kako da se ponašamo i drugima prenesemo saznanja o požarima. Zahvaljujemo divnim stručnim ljudima, gospodinu Beloševiću iz Srbijašume i gospodinu Petroviću iz  Sektora za vanredne situacije Vatrogasci – spasioci, koji su nam demonstrirali postupke „prve pomoći” u gašenju požara. Nakon seče ugljenisanih stabala, sledeće jeseni se priključujemo sadnji na požarištima. Dogovorena je pojedinačna sadnja u školskom dvorištu i na mestima gde smo uklanjali invazivne vrste. Sadnice smo dobili od  Srbijašume a savete o pogodnim  lokacijama od Turističke organizacije Čačak. Hvala im na poverenju.
