“Clean Trchkan” Environmental Campaign



Posted on 24 September 2013  | 
On September 21, 2013, WWF Armenia together with Mets Parni community of Lori province organized "Clean Trchkan" environmental campaign by cleaning up waste sites of adjacent areas of Trchkan Waterfall Nature Monument located in Lori province.

During the campaign the surrounding areas of the waterfall were cleaned from household waste. The collected garbage was sorted in different bags by separating plastic, glass and other types of garbage.
The campaign participants were WWF Armenia’s staff, the schoolchildren and other members of Mets Parni community.

The environmental campaign was organized in the framework of the “Forest landscape restoration in Northern Armenia” projected funded by WWF Switzerland. The project in Armenia is implemented by WWF Armenia. The main objective of the project is the reforestation of forests and thus restoring the natural habitat of critically endangered plant and animal species. The project will result in the restoration of 70 hectares of mountain forest adjacent to Trchkan waterfall area as well as the establishment of a nursery for rehabilitation of threatened forest species in the territory of the Institute of Botany NAS RA in Yerevan.
