The Baikal Nature Reserve School has started working again in the Zabaikalsky National Park.
The interactive educational site is located in the geodome near the entrance to the national park, to the right of the visitor center. The school is freely accessible to everyone who comes to the National Park. Information on how to get to the school is available at the ticket office, the national park visitor’s center, or from project volunteers. If you want to visit the Baikal Nature Reserve School as part of an organized group, you need to send an application in advance to email@example.com, indicating the name of the organization, number and age of visitors.
The Baikal Nature Reserve School is open daily on weekdays until the end of October. Admission is free. A unique feature of the project is accessibility for people with disabilities.
Lake Baikal Foundation opened the School last year as the first environmental education project of this format in Russia. It is an interactive site where each visitor gets comprehensive knowledge about the Baikal ecosystem and responsible waste management in the form of a game. Children and adults can play the role of a scientist, researcher and take part in laboratory experiments.
This year, a new lesson about climate change is available for school and university students. VR glasses will be added to the school’s equipment. With their help, all visitors will be able to observe the Baikal landscapes in different seasons.
This year, the work of the Baikal Nature Reserve School became possible thanks to the support of the World Around You Foundation of Siberian Wellness Corporation and Raiffeisenbank JSC in cooperation with the Kod Dobra (Code of Kindness) Foundation.
