Activities of the project will be represent into three phases:
The ﬁrst phase includes collecting samples, twice during the seasonal period for establishing the changes in the ecosystem during the seasons. Sampling will be done using kick-net specialized for spring type of ecosystem. At each ﬁeld we will measure physical and chemical parameters of water: air temperature, temperature of water, depth of water, pH value, water conductivity, turbidity, concentration of oxygen, concentration of phosphorus, nitrate, nitrite, chloride, phosphorus, nitrogen and BOD5. The samples then will be packed in plastic bags, labelled and transferred to the laboratory for counting, sorting and determination.
The second phase involves laboratory work. Collected samples will be sorted and determined using the speciﬁc identiﬁcation keys. Based on the obtained results we will form the database and write all the time the note book of laboratory work. The public will be notiﬁed about the results and a great number of volunteers will be included in the research process and the importance of the project will be represented.
The third phase includes the presentation of the obtained results and informing the public about it. The presentation includes the creation of promotional materials, including posters, sketches and power point presentations and present to students and pupils of the surrounding educational institutions and the local population in order to raise human consciousness about the importance of conservation and protection of springs, not just as sources of drinking water is a growing problem but and the importance of protecting biodiversity. It is interesting that these areas are very poor tourist visited probably due to lack of knowledge of the population on the existence of such regions, so that should indicate to the public on these natural resources.
- lectures to students and pupils
- posters and informing the local population
The organization and management of the camp at the Stara Mountain with students and any interested volunteers for their education and training for independent research of springs. The planned realisation of the project is one year.
