Clean up your forest
The forest is our playground. And since we get to places where even the most ardent mushroom picker or tourist does not get lost during races and training, we care about the cleanliness of the forest not just around footpaths and paths, but also in such places - and we gradually clean them from garbage that does not belong in the forest. Our activity is an ideal complement to activities such as "Clean up the Czechia", "plogging" and the like.
Plant your forest
The forest, our playground, is currently completely disappearing due to the bark beetle calamity. We see this as an opportunity to begin the transformation of our monocultural forests into species-rich, strong stands that not only cope with the changing climate, but also provide better enjoyment and higher orienteering quality for all orienteering sports and for the public. We want to contribute to this as a union, divisions and each of us. More about the project.
Greening when organizing competitions
The growing popularity of orienteering sports means a larger number of competitors and newcomers to races, up to 2,000 people. As responsible partners of our nature, we try to lead by example and figure out how to minimize the impact of such events on nature.…
