On July 2014 the Municipality of Madona region according to the delegation contract handed the management of the Information center "Lubana Wetland" to the society "Pie Kraujas".
The location of the society is the city of Madona, it consists of 16 young people, who are united by the interest of active recreation, mountain climbing, snowboarding, the respect for natural values of Latvia, as well as by the patriotism of Latvia and Madona region.
The society is actively involved not only in the cleaning of the territory, its maintenance and in providing the information about Lubana Lake and its surroundings, but it also actively works on the improvement of the quality of the local population’s social life and on the opportunities to spend free time in a valuable manner.
The Information Center is located in a beautiful, human intact place with a rich natural diversity, and our goal is to honor this place, to preserve and respect it by taking care of the surrounding environment and people who live in it.
The initiative of the creation of a local group was launched at the end of year 2015.
We organize bird watching events in the fall and spring, hiking trips, workshops (making nest boxes for birds, some creative workshops). Once a year organizing meeting of Madona’s local group un together with our members organizing events in your neighborhood – camps for kids and youth, bird learning courses (happened in Madona and Rēzekne town) etc.
Currently the communication about the events happens via Facebook page of the Information Center “Lubana Wetland”, but to be subscribed to the e-mail information list, you must write to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is only the beginning of our activities – it is still a long way to go and there is a lot to do.
