Project partners of the NH-WF project meet on the first half year meeting. The meeting was held in the beautiful surroundings of our pilot area – Zelenica. Few guests from different institutions joined us and shared their knowledge with us.

The second day was dedicated to the fieldwork. We climbed Stol, where we looked for the location of the meteo station.

The meeting was successful, and also the weather was perfect so we could also enjoy the beautiful scenery of Zelenica Valley.



The first serious project partner meeting is coming.

We will meet on Wednesday the 7th March 2012 in our pilot area
(Zelenica) and join technical part of the meeting with field work observations
on Thursday.

Hopefully the weather will serve us well!

Dear partners, see you soon!
