Last year our school organized two clubs connected with the protection of the environment. The first one was called “Green paths” and the second “Close meeting with the nature”. We were very interested because 2 times a month we went to trips to beautiful places. In one of the trips we put different drawings to show people what can and can’t do in the forest. For example where to throw the rubbish, not to make a fire, not to cut the trees and so on. There was another club connected with woodwork in which students made little wood houses for birds and put it on trees in our zoo in Knezha.
Everyone who is interested in things connected with animals, plants and beautiful sights have to visit Bulgaria. You won’t be disappointed. There is a lot to see:
