One of our colleagues, has participated on the 9th edition of “The cultural and natural heritage camp” organized by the Lost World Speleo-Tourism and Nature Protection Association. The leaders of camp were: Demeter Mária, Dénes Ildikó and Demeter Zoltán. The team has taken part in a trip around the Vargyas strait, and has identified the oldest trees from the zone. All together we have identified 12 remarkable trees, 2 field maples, 3 oak trees and 7 beech trees.
