† Some plants and grass are left behind so that animals – especially insects, but not only – can take advantage of what blooms and provides, for example, seeds as food. Finally, some grasses and shrubs serve as shelter for some of the beautiful species of our “smaller brothers”, additionally regulating the temperature of the water in the stream, providing shade and preventing it from overheating, while providing a wide range of excellent breeding and foraging areas – gives an overview of the Ecological Education Center in Czechowice-Dziedzice.
† Our employee does his best to ensure that the correct ecological and landscape values remain aesthetically visible and displayed for observation and educational purposes. He also ensures that there is an unshakable balance between the need to maintain floodplains and retention areas – as well as partially recreational – in good condition and functionality and aesthetics, and the need to ensure the well-being of the valley’s wild inhabitants and friendly and encouraging living conditions for them – adds Czechowice CEE.
as noted by the Ecological Education Center,”The valley of the Czechowickie Stream is not a park area, but an ecological area, primarily intended for nature, with selected recreational functions, but maintaining an appropriate balance, sometimes subtle and sometimes difficult to perceive† Both the municipal infrastructure and the park and recreation offer are varied and very wide, and let us use them wisely, bearing in mind that not every area only serves people, and in naturally valuable areas the emphasis should be on the well-being of the local flora and fauna. Let’s take advantage of the opportunity to observe and support the care of native natural resources, and minimize our interference and situations where humans can harm protected species, including through noise and animal scare, as well as litter. Isn’t the joy of these ducks in the photo of not swimming among the garbage worth our “effort”…? – he makes a list.
† Therefore, let us not litter and remember that, for example, street waste bins (especially those in ecological and protected areas) pose a threat to animals and nature, as they are a source of dangerous objects carried by the wind and unknowingly modified by animals living on search for food sources and building materials, for example for nests, which often ends tragically for them (for example, waste goes to the digestive systems of animals or their nesting and feeding places, where they threaten their other living functions). So let’s use them wisely – street bins are not used to dispose of household waste, which should not be brought here and must be managed at the place of production ie at home and with proper segregation rules. – urges the Centre.
† So if you brought a bottle, after emptying it, return it to where you got it. Have you already eaten your favorite burger and washed it down with a sugary drink on our benches and at the tables on the castle hill? We hope you liked it, and yet you don’t have to leave the remnants of this nutritious set in the grass, the parking lot or even in the garbage – you didn’t buy this meal here so why do you want to leave its leftovers here ? Has your baby eaten a candy? Enjoy your meal! But teach them that hiding and taking the newspaper home is not only a sign of good upbringing, but above all culturally, ecologically and socially desirable behavior, and also the only thing appropriate and completely neutral for the local nature in this situation. And it takes no more “effort” than bringing the piece of paper and its contents here. Remember – the fact that there is a garbage can between vegetation and animals does not mean that it should not be empty … Let it be used by those who may not have the right ecological awareness – summarizes the Ecological Education Center in Czechowice-Dziedzice.
