Sanctuaries, Amber and Basalt


The Association for Social Integration and Environment Protection ?Feedback?, along with the Agency for Environment Protection Brasov and the young local democrats organized a camp designed to renew the natural reserves in Racos.
Costi Ciocoiu, president of ?Feedback? Association, is also curator of the protected areas. ?The camp is meant to restore the reserves financed by the National Authority for Youth. The custody was assumed by the Agency for Environment Protection Brasov?.

Guide marks and Ecology

Attending the event, Ciprian Bancila, director of the Agency for Environment Protection Brasov, was extremely pleased with the youths? work. ?They got deeply involved in this action: they mark and clean the land and put bench-marks on the ranges. Their work is not only ecology, but also supposes getting people conscious about environment protection?.

Camp Atmosphere

The initiative group was established three years and a half ago. Thirty persons ? members and volunteers from all the country have attended the camp organized at Racos. The action started on Juin 30 and finished on July 11; besides the activities above described, the participants also set up orientation ranges. As in every real encampment, once the tents installed in circle, a big camp-fire was lit in the middle.

Dacian Sanctuary

?The reserves are located on the other side of river Olt, so we needed to find a way the cross it. We wanted first to set up a ropeway but we finally get content with an Indian bridge and some crossing cables. Our goal was to reach the basaltic columns from Racos, the Fossiliferous Points Carhaga and Ormenis. We gathered as much information we could of this very important area from an archaeological point of view, considered the second Dacian sanctuary after Sarmisegetusa, the famous Dacian settlement. Another interesting location is Detunata Hill, an ex-castrum dating back from the Romans time?.

Before the Dinosaurs

The expedition offered the participants the opportunity to find ancient relevant pieces: ammonites (petrified plants, animals and snails), fossils, fragments of ancient roman pottery and stones dating back before the dinosaurs? era, incrusted with marine elements.
The inhabitants know a lot of stories about theirs ancestors; they even think the area is reach in amber. According to the expedition?s chief, verifying the local legends was another purpose of the expedition.
