We were met by the chief of the Krasnoyarsky Forestry - Nadezhda Smirnova and forestry workers: Vitaly Serebryakov and Pavel Grishchenkov. While we went on a forest road, Nadezhda Smirnova showed traces of young roe deer and drew attention to plow up the land along the road: it is wild boar sought a young roots and larvae of beetles.
On a place work for the volunteers specialists of Krasnoyarsky forestry conducted a Master-class about working with "the Sword of Kolesov". Students and teachers quickly were divided into "swordsmen" and "planters" and the work began. At this time, planting were young 2-year-old aspen and 3-year old pines. So that our forest is mixed. Work went in unison, and it soon became even hot. Thanks to the coordinated work we planted about 1,000 seedlings of young trees.
After work, Nadezhda Smirnova thanked the young volunteers and invited them to come again. And finally we went to the source, where we drank a cool, clean spring water.
