A preventive patrol
On Thursday, October 13th, after a few rainy days, it cleared up a bit and we could go out on patrol in the western part of Garb Pińczowski, which had been planned for several weeks. This time we were accompanied by a group from the Youth Fostering Centre in Chęciny. It was cloudy, cold and windy, but the Nida valley was quite well visible, and we could also watch kestrels circling near the Skowronno reserve, through binoculars. The participants had an opportunity to listen to a short lecture on the geology and biology of the region, but picking splendid wild mushrooms on our way was even more attractive. We did not find any illegal rubbish dumps, and after going down to Brzeście, the patrol was ended with a bonfire at the ZŚiNPK premises in Krzyżanowice.
