The program of transferring experience to the regions is actively being prepared - this year BBT specialists will travel to six regions: to Kostroma, the Republic of Bashkortostan, the Arkhangelsk and Novgorod Regions, the Trans-Baikal Territory, and the Republic of Crimea. A program has been drawn up and correspondence is being held with the host parties.
The development of a distance learning program for interpreters and interpreters and assistants to BBT team leaders has begun, and a program has been drawn up.
The preparation of BBT team courses has begun - full-time classes will be held in Irkutsk from March to May and will end with the "final exam" - a practical BBT workshop in the Baikal Reserve.
Spring is coming - a season of trips and intelligence. We began preparations for reconnaissance, a travel schedule was set.
An inventory of all BBT equipment has begun.
Our designer began to develop layouts of arrows, pointers and stands that will be installed on this year's projects.
We started work on creating video clips - this year 4 videos about our activities will be released. It's nice that thanks to the cooperation with the Lime-Accelerator project, a video clip of social advertising about volunteering on BBT has already been created: https://youtu.be/T0rh1eV-Nio
Work continues - planning BBT work for 10 years until 2030. A dialogue with protected areas has been launched in order to identify and agree on priority areas for the development of paths in Lake Baikal.
Several strategic planning sessions have been held. We worked out the formulation of our mission, our values, principles of work, deduced our goals and our vision, formed the definition of "BBT Leader is this", and also identified the tree of problems that BBT will work with in the near future.
International Education Exhibition
01/28/2019
The BBT Association took part in an international education exhibition held on January 27, 2019 at the Ibis Hotel in Irkutsk.
The event was organized by the Wilhelm von Humboldt Center for German Language.
BBT specialists and volunteers told visitors about our activities and how knowledge of foreign languages opens new doors for BBT projects.
"Foreign languages on Lake Baikal" - this was one of the topics of the exhibition, where BBT also gave the floor.
Here's what we talked about: "There are many tourists on Lake Baikal, including many who come to us for BBT projects. Since 2003, BBT has been the only opportunity for foreigners to visit Lake Baikal in an interesting way.
In order to accept foreigners for projects, the BBT Association conducts courses of translators, after which the guys go to the project - for a two-week immersion in intercultural communication, in the language. The opportunities for foreign internships are broader for active BBT volunteers and translators - the practice of a foreign language. "
In late spring, BBT will launch free BBT translator courses, stay tuned for announcements.

The winter project is over
02/22/2019
From February 5-14, in the village of Tankhoi, on the shore of Lake Baikal, the first BBT volunteer project took place this year.
Participants of the winter project "Snow of the Baikal Reserve" can be called the most brave and desperate of our volunteers - not afraid of forty-degree Siberian frosts (which, to be honest, hard came even for us Siberians), guys from Moscow, Samara, Shchelkovo, Melenok, Lytkarino, Sibaya , Melbourne (Australia) and Vienna (Austria) came to harsh Siberia to get acquainted with winter Baikal and help the Baikal Reserve.
For 10 days in the reserve, the volunteers managed to redo a bunch of things:
• cleaned the snow on wooden paths,
• did spring cleaning at visit centers,
• developed and conducted a lesson for students of a local school on the topic of eco-professions,
• erected several benches in the carpentry workshop (and then solemnly installed a couple of them on the new path),
• wrapped juniper bushes to protect fragile plants from the bright Baikal sun,
• tested the quest, invented for young guests of the reserve,
• shared with the reserve their ideas for children's activities and souvenirs.
The Baikal Reserve always warmly welcomes BBT volunteers. This was no exception. The guys went on an interesting tour of the Museum of Nature with an honorary employee of the reserve Nikolai Nikolaevich. We watched stunning photographs and listened to breathtaking stories from the wonderful wildlife photographer Alexei Bezrukov. Fun went for a walk in the snowy taiga on kamusnyh hunting skis. They took a good steam bath in the bathhouse, and after that they were especially brave even bathed in snowdrifts.
And in honor of Sagaalgan - the Buryat New Year - they learned to cook poses - the Buryat national dish. We tried the Sacher cake - the very chocolate sweet that many tourists travel to the Austrian capital. We listened to a concert on the harmonica, poems and tales of my own composition. We played in the brain ring, learning a lot of interesting facts about Samara Luka and the Zhiguli Mountains. We realized that the history of a small town near Moscow can be no less interesting than the history of the capital city (the main thing is the ability to present!). We saw that the work of prospecting geologists is not only dangerous and difficult, but also fun and romantic. They crunched Togliatti dryers (the most delicious dryers in Russia) and enjoyed TimTam - the favorite cookie of the Australian kids
In general, there were so many affairs, events and adventures on the project that you won't remember everything!
I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Baikal Reserve and its staff for their hospitality, friendliness and interesting tasks.
And, of course, many, many thanks to the volunteer guys for their help, enthusiasm, new ideas and for the fact that every minute of our project was full of meaning!
The project was carried out using a grant from the President of the Russian Federation for the development of civil society provided by the Presidential Grants Fund.

Schoolchildren tried themselves in the role of scientific workers, having carried out an inventory of animals and observing how the seal population is changing from year to year. We learned what the work of a tourism manager is like, having developed an eco-route along Baikal for a group of foreign tourists. We came up with our own protected areas, discussed what a fictional reserve would be protected (as a result, underwater plants and rare fish, eagles and all animals), discussed what kind of staff we needed for the successful operation of the protected area.
The lesson at Bolshoi Goloustnoy was the final BBT retreat this season. Next fall, students of our sponsored schools expect exciting new lessons on equally interesting and useful topics!
We remind you that all the trips of our specialists within the field classes became possible with the assistance of our partners En + Group

Primordial Russia
05/30/2019
On May 26, children and adults gathered as part of the Primordial Russia exhibition to learn a little more about the little creatures that filter Baikal's water: amphipod, planarium and epishura. The participants were introduced to the inhabitants of Lake Baikal by the coordinators of educational projects of the Big Baikal Trail Association Irina Kovalenkova and Anna Zelikhman.
The names of these animals turned out to be so unusual that they even had to figure out who is who !? But then everyone was passionate about the game. Participants reincarnated as migratory birds, did their best to get to the place of the next camp. But bad weather, hunters, forest fires and bird watchers, had different effects on the flight of birds. Someone quickly reached the goal, others took 3-4 attempts for a successful flight! Both children and adults really enjoyed playing, the participants discovered a lot of new things.
We thank the organizers of "Primordial Russia" for the invitation and organization of the work of our station.
The next lesson for children "With a backpack along the trail" of the BBT educational department will be held in one of the parks of the city of Irkutsk in June - August.

07/15/2019
So the next project came forward today from the courtyard of the BBT Hostel! This time, the volunteers and their commanders go to the Siberian "jungle" - to the wilds of the marvelous Khamar-Daban mountain range ...
The project "In Debri Hamar-Daban - 1" will be held on the territory of the Baikal Reserve, in forests two kilometers from the village of #Tankhoy, on the banks of the mountain river Osinovka. It will last 14 days. During the project, the guys will need to build a new trail, as well as build fortification walls on a wet slope.
It's not for nothing that Hamar-Daban was called the Siberian "jungle", because the humidity in this region is much higher than anywhere else in the Baikal Region. Therefore, the trail must be done at the highest level! We believe in the guys and support them.
Bon Voyage!
