"Autumn is a time for reaping what has been sown, for rejoicing in what has been achieved, for reflecting. Autumn is that beautiful moment when nature puts on its most spectacular show - the last one before sinking into sleep. This autumn we celebrate the beauty of nature and the need to preserve it" - this is the invitation to the first Nature Fest in the South Park in Sofia. 

On Saturday, September 30, visitors can join in birdwatching around the park with ornithologists. They can take part in discussions and hands-on wetland educational games with a focus on Dragoman Marshes.

There will also be lots of activities for the youngsters, under the theme "Meet the Wild Actors of the Eastern Rhodopes". 

The day will end with the presentation of the Annual Biodiversity and Climate Awards. The festival is part of the We Give Nature a Voice project aimed at popularizing the joint efforts of the For the Nature coalition of environmental organizations to preserve Bulgaria’s natural treasure. The project is implemented by the Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation in partnership with Green Balkans and with the financial support of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the Active Citizens Fund in Bulgaria within the EEA Financial Mechanism.
