First workshops were organised in Croatia. Within an open door day in Krasno the school children were divided into two groups, depending on their age. While the younger group coloured lynx silhouettes, the older played a game in photo-identification.
Second Open door day in Croatia was carried out in Primary school Vrbovsko, in cooperation with a local hunter.
In Slovenia after having a workshop and a field trip with Young Guardians of Lynx, we’re now organising Open door days with these nine schools.
First Open door day in Slovenia was in Gymnasium Kočevje, joined with an “exchangement” event. High school students gathered things for second hand exchange and prepared posters about energy and water use and pollution. Since this was already a small market place, we had a lynx stand as well, presenting also a cartoon (SI) made by a student.
In the spring days, we continued with a slightly different Open door day at the Koroška Bela Primary School in Jesenice, where not only the pupils were present, but also their parents. After a workshop on Lynx and other forest inhabitants, the young guardians received a bookmark with a picture of Lynx Julija.
We look forward to the remaining Open door days – one day is not the same as another!
