Kura- Araks Basin Protection Day: Common River – Common Opportunities
An environmental event on Kura-Araks Rivers’ Protection Day was held by Country Water Partnership scientific- educational NGO and Lori marz Mets Parni rural administration on the 2nd of June. At the beginning of the event information leaflets and T-shirts with CWP and Kura-Araks Rivers Logos were presented to the students.
The event aimed to inform the high school students on the vital importance of Kura-Araks rivers, to introduce the issues on rivers’ ecosystems preservation, to present the national and transboundary processes and make them the direct participants in environment protection. The participants implemented cleaning works in Trchkan waterfall, emerging from Chichkhan river, a left tributary of the river Pambak, situated in Shirak and Lori regions. The participants cleaned the waterfall green area from garbage. The track of the rural administration later transported the garbage to Spitak landfill.
