Bird Garden of František Ginter

The outside exposition was set up due to the grant of the Olomouc Region. Arrangement of a garden was a part of the project “OK to Nature” supported by European Social Foundation.

The bird‘s linden

Woodcarving symposium took place at the ornithological station in the autumn of the year 2006. The group of woodcarvers changed the doddered linden standing in front of the entrance to station into work of art with relief of different bird species.

The living birds in the dead wood symbolise natural circle of life in which everything has its un-substitutable place. Unfortunately the wood sculpture fall down in 2011. Now its parts are renewed. After renovation, parts of linden will be used to decoration of station building.
