Title: Reclamation of Quary in Czech Republic
The revitalization of the quarry with elements of nature conservation combined with environmental education is a unique project that is not only acknowledged in the Czech Republic but around all of central Europe. It clearly shows the inexhaustible potential of limestone and other quarries that were in the past unreasonably covered up or used as industrially devastated locations. At the same time these localities, often called landscape scars, in the relatively short period of ten years can become scientifically interesting areas that supplement a diversity of natural locations in the whole locality.
