Excursion in in Ventės Ragas Ornithological Station

Ventės Ragas is an ideal place for watching and catching birds bot in geographical and natural respect. One of the biggest bird migration ways extends over the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. Sometimes, during September and October, more than 3 million of birds fly over Klaipėda per day, 70-80 per cent of which turn to the Curonian Lagoon, and approximately 30 per cent choose their way to the Eastern shore of the Curonian Lagoon towards Ventės Ragas. In 1959, the first stationary catchers 12 m in height and 40 m in width were established. In 1978, the great bird catcher was set up in Ventės Ragas. Both these catchers are the largest in the world. Over the last 26 years, 1.6 million birds were ringed in Ventės Ragas. Currently, 50,000 to 80,000 birds are ringed in Ventės Ragas annually.

Excursion in Baltic Mythology Park

Baltic mythology park upholds old Baltic culture traditions. The aim for building Educational paths is to showcase original Baltic architecture of the universe and the world through images (sculpture) and sound (singing and story telling).

The path is located in a pyramid-shaped forest area. The layout of the paths is the horizontal projection of the topography creates a fusiform, which marks the framework of the World, the World Tree, the human way of life, the perception of space in Baltic model.
