Young people showed great interest in learning and activity during getting to know the relation of cause-effect risks of life. Most of self-reliance reflected in the group work when students identify specific risks to the species of animals (including bees, bat, seals) and the actions that can be taken to protect it.

From November 2015 in area of Ketrzyn, Szczytno and Ostroleka district in Primary Schools, and secondary schools within the project "Get to know and love what squeaks in the grass" were conducted lectures for children and youth. Educational activities led the social naturalist- bodyguards, who participated in the training. During the lectures they discussed about issues related to environmental Protection, threats and the consequences that have a huge impact on our environment. As a part of the lectures there have been organized competitions for children and youth, where you could get a nice gift.

Here a few notes and photos from the lecture made by people who run this activity:

1. Lectures, which I run in 3 second classes of Primary School in Reszel, went weary well . Although I had big stage fright I coped to do it. Children were involved in lectures, they took an active part in the discussion and in the competition, they liked the film "A trip to the forest" that i showed them. Awards from competition give them great joy. I think they understand concepts of biodiversity , ecosystem and why we need to protect our environment. My impression of these activities are very positive.

2.During realization of project "Get to know and love what squeaks in the grass" classes about environmental protection has been realized in the second class of the Primary School No. 3 in Szczytno. Classes aimed to modeling in children active attitude, appropriate behavior and habits concerning the protection of the environment. Students learned about the effects of good and bad human activates in nature. They recognized the tremendous role of the forest, clean water and the environment on health and life of each of us. They solidified and expanded the knowledge of plants and animals living in the forests. The film "Safe Forest" recalled and extended knowledge of students about treats and safe behavior in the forest. The use of different methods and forms of work and a variety of teaching aids affected on big attractiveness of classes. Interest in the subject of nature and the environment among the students is huge. Through such activities we gain a great crowd of supporters of environmental protection , care for their own environment and conscious of taking care of our planet. The students were very interested and active in class. Through games, puzzles, common action and the conversation we bring up very important issues concerning the protection of the environment and the future life on Earth.

3.During 17 - 23 November 2015 in the Primary School in Myszyniec in classes 0 and I-III took part classes about ecological topics realized thru project "Get to know and love what squeaks in the grass". These lectures attracted a lot of excitement in the children. With great interest and joy they watched images of various animals, plants, trees, landscapes. Sadly they spoke about illustrations, in which they had seen garbage thrown out in unauthorized places, burning forests, smoking chimneys, cars emitting exhaust fumes. Participation in the meeting realized the children the need of continuous care for the surrounding environment. A nice element during classes was a contest in form of puzzles, which have not caused problems for children and a variety of gifts they received at the end of the lesson.

- Expanded knowledge about nature protection

In conclusion, I consider that the subject of the meeting, materials and the finishing meeting by competition met with great interest. it confirms the relevance of the subject and methods of implementation of the project "Get to know and love what squeaks in the grass".
An important aspect of this project is to intergenerational integration.
