On a cold winter evening, young people gathered at the zoo for vechornytsi. Beautifully dressed boys and girls divined their fortunes, had fun, played folk games, and bit "kalyta". Temporarily, our room for the classes of young biologists turned into a cozy house, decorated with old rushnyky, fragrant hay and even a naive folk icon of St. Mykolay. Our young naturalists were able to show their talents, talked about their handicrafts. Modern youth also learned the history of the Ukrainian people, the ancient traditions of their ancestors, because young biologists should be comprehensively developed people. Young people sang modern Ukrainian songs, boys and girls emphasized their faith in victory! We thank all the participants and hope that thanks to our "Vechornytsi at the zoo" the children got only positive impressions!
