MetadataShow full item record
Załęcze Nature Park founded in 1978 protects the natural scenery of the most northern part of the Jurassic Cracow-Wieluń Uplands. Genesis of the park, its natural resources and their previous utilization, as well as scientific, educational, aesthetic and recreational values are described. The park is highly useful for recreation of people, for study and for teaching of the Earth history, geomorphological processes, human impact on the environment, flora and fauna. There have been preserved here historical monuments of material culture, relicts of old customs, and historical character of the landscape. One of important tasks of the park alongside its teaching and recreational values is the fact that it is to serve the ecological education of young people within programmes carried out by the Polish Pathfinders’ Association. The Association has its field station and training centre here; it conducts pathfinders’ camps, and carries its patronage over the park (for summary see page 62-65).
