Each of us is an integral part of nature. We like to watch the first drop, foreshadowing the beginning of spring; the first snow, turning the city into a white fairy tale; the autumn leaf fall, carpeting the earth with a golden carpet. However, increasingly often we forget that all this beauty depends on us, on how we treat it. Forests should please us with mighty trees, fragrant plants, clean water of murmuring streams. In order to draw attention to the problems of the environment protection, cultivation of careful and attentive attitude to nature, on October 19, 2017, the active participants of the school forestry "Green Patrol" with representatives of State Budgetary Institution “Bugulminskiy Forestry Establishment” L.V.Sadykova and State Public Institution "Bugulminskiy Forestry", the district forest ranger of the Utazinskiy forest district, A.A.

It should be remembered that the forest is our common national wealth. To preserve it, make it safer are our common task.
The Social Chamber of Russia, which has the authority to form social councils under federal executive bodies, decided to conduct a competitive admission of candidates for the Social Council under the Federal Forestry Agency. All persons interested in the competition, potential candidates, as well as specialized public associations and other non-governmental non-profit organizations are called to respond and participate in a very important event for the forestry sector. From October 23 to November 13, the Social Chamber of the Russian Federation accepts applications from citizens having experience in forestry industry and an independent position in the implementation of the proposed activity, the ability to protect the right and freedom of citizens in the forest sector.

We remind that the first membership of the Social Council under the Federal Forestry Agency was approved in 2005. From 2007 to 2014, it functioned under the name of the Social Environmental Council under Federal Forestry Agency. In April 2014, the Council again is renamed as Social. But already next year - according to the new standards of the activity of social councils adopted by the Government of the Russian Federation - the so-called "reset" of social councils functioning under federal executive bodies began. Unfortunately, it did not deal with the Social Council under Federal Forestry Agency.
And now it is necessary: to develop a new Regulation on the Social Council under Federal Forestry Agency, criteria for potential candidates applying for membership in the Council, to conduct a transparent procedure for selecting future members of the Social Council under Federal Forestry Agency together with the Social Chamber of the Russian Federation.
Federal Forestry Agency is interested in preserving and strengthening this most important public instrument of interaction with the expert, scientific and civic communities

Everyone can plant a tree, but in this process it is necessary to take into account a lot of nuances and fineness. The inspectors of State Integrated Nature Reserve Baltasinskiy held a workshop for schoolchildren, during which they told and showed how to plant correctly young pine trees. Each student was excited by the desire to try to plant his own tree. So on the territory of the reserve 800 pieces of trees were planted. At the end of the event, the distinguished students were awarded certificates for active participation in cleaning up the area and seedlings planting.
For the first time the idea of trees planting within the framework of the republican environmental protection campaign was realized in 2010 and the next year the successful idea was picked up by other regions, since then it has acquired the All-Russian scale. It is aimed at preservation and increasing of forest resources, development of careful attitude to "green" wealth.
