Volunteer Season Continues at Yasnaya Polyana


The restoration of the coniferous areas of the forest planted in 1864-1907 has begun at Yasnaya Polyana; several years ago they suffered from the outbreak of the European spruce bark-beetle. It has become a tradition for volunteers to come help the staff of the museum’s forest department. The spring session of the season has already begun, and on April 22-23, 2017 the second volunteer camp took place; many of its participants have been coming to Yasnaya Polyana since 2013, when the Museum Volunteer Camp project had just begun. The volunteers tended to the recently planted fir trees by adding soil to the holes around the saplings and, if necessary, straightening up the lopsided trunks. During the weekend, 320 trees were straightened. All in all, about 779 fir trees were planted by volunteers in April (including as part of the Let’s Preserve Yasnaya Polyana for Future Generations program). Photos can be seen here >>>
