A tourist route "The geological and geomorphological record of the Baltic Sea" is being developed

In parallel with the creation of the exposition, one must think about how to make the journey through the exposition cognitive. Researchers of the IKBFU together with Russian and Lithuanian experts of the project partners are developing a tourist route "Geological and geomorphological chronicle of the Baltic" and create a cognitive educational program "Ecotour4Natur". I bring to your attention its structure:
  1. Biological features of the Curonian Spit;
  2. Birds as an important part of the land and sea life of the Baltic Sea coast;
  3. Ecosystems of land-water interaction and coastal ecosystems (creation, structure, coexistence, vulnerability and anthropogenic impact). Nature Conservation Act and Visitor Rules. Opportunities / potential for the development of ecotourism in the project area;
  4. Origin of the area (geological history of the area);
  5. Geological structure of the coastal zone (with illustrations showing how it looks when the layers are opened during the destruction of the coast), geoecological complexes of dunes;
  6. Coastline landscape (relief, water, plants);
  7. Guidelines;
  8. Scientific organizations of Russia and Lithuania, their contribution to modern studies of geology and biology of land;
  9. The history of creation and modern work of the Biological Station of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Ornithological Station).

"Arctic in the Baltic" (Baltic Sea at the base of the Curonian Spit, February 2021).
