...A visit to the well-organised landscape-Biotope 'Ecoperiighitis' (Sightseeing Ecologic Centre of Kerkini Beles) Address: 620 55 Kerkini Serves, Telephone: 0327 041450, Fax: 0327 041450. Persons in charge: ECOPERIIGHITIS (Sightseeing Ecologic Centre of Kerkini-Beles) Ioannis Reclos, Ioannis Avramidis)
....The landscape is well organised and it is influenced by the contemporary ways of approaching nature, which means a combination of environmental education with pleasure and generally with the positive attitude towards the protection and the right usage of the environment as well as the respect and love for nature.
....It is located near the biotope of lake Kerkini and offers the visitors a lot of educational activities in which they can participate and acquaint themselves with nature.
Our students took part in the following activities: Educational informing, screening slides and video tapes, walking on an ecological path, archery or lesson of orientation, an excursion round the lake by canoe, observation, discussion, telescopes, binoculars and life jackets.

....The two persons in charge of this organised landscape helped in the touring of the visitors and at the same time they were responsible for the safety of our students.
Our visit to this place was part of the programme of environmental education. The students were well informed about the visit and they were properly dressed. They had some food with them as well as a notebook to take notes. During the visit they were given informative leaflets. Souvenirs were also available.
....This visit is advisable especially for students of the fifth and sixth grade either for an all-day or for a semi-day visit. In the second case someone can also visit Ano Poroyia , a nearby green area with steak houses and an entertainment park. We visited this place in 2001.
