Course Completion

Congratulations to our future expedition leaders and assistants on completion of the course ‘Leadership and Path Building’.

On 29 and 30 May, the practical seminar for course participants took place in the Irkutsk Botanic Garden. Our future leaders and assistants put their knowledge into practice and constructed 245 metres of footpath. Participants widened the base of the path, overlaid it with gravel, and cleared the area of intrusive branches.

Alongside this, a theory test was carried out, which all participants passed successfully. Thank you to you guys for your interest in our work, and for your desire to help and contribute to the preservation of Baikal.

Separate thanks to the Irkutsk Botanic Garden for a warm welcome. It was wonderful to work on our historic footpath.

New specialists are ready and raring to go. Join one of our Great Baikal Trail projects. To sign up as a volunteer, go to: Choose the date for you and fill out the form!
