In the Beskydy Mountains, they return water to nature, build ponds

The ČSOP Salamandr organization, which has been taking care of wetland meadows in the Beskydy Mountains for many years, is trying to solve the problem that is being talked about a lot today, ie poor water retention in the landscape.

“Our landscape suffers from alternating periods of drought and torrential rains. We can fight this by holding as much water as possible in the landscape. Wetlands, which are an important element of a healthy landscape, will help us with that. “ says the chairman Vojtěch Bajer.

Personal supervision of the god of abundance

The organization is supported by the Radegast brewery, which brought to the established ponds of the same name a 2.5 meter high and weighing 1.5 tons ice sculpture of a pagan god, after which he inherited the name.

Due to the good weather, the statue began to melt immediately, according to the organizers’ estimates, it will last only a few days and it is possible that it will soon collapse completely.

“Every drop makes sense, and we believe that each of us can get involved in the fight for water. The water has to stay here, because without it there would be no beer, “ said the brewery manager Josef Jalůvka.

Rubber boots with you

Waterlogged meadow Pod Juráškou in the cadastre of Prostřední Bečva is a locality, of which there are not many in the Beskydy. Orchids and gladioli flowers bloom here until the end of June. Newts or large dragonfly larvae live in the ponds.

Other similar places in the Beskydy Mountains include the Hutě wetland in Staré Hamry or the Plucnarka wetland in the Čeladenka valley.
