In order not to waste time, organizers of this project have started to make preparation for the presentation of “Familiar strangers”. It is planned to establish about 50 panels with QR-codes near the unique species of tress this September. What is more, every single panels will have its special QR-codes from both sides; one side is going to be in Ukrainian, and another one in English (translation of the text will be made also by Olena Boika, as she has not only professional biological education, but also Master’s degree in Foreign Language). If you want to find information about the unique tree you should scan the corresponding QR-code from the panel by using the typical QR-reader which can be downloaded in your phone and in a few seconds you will get the needed, affordable and interesting information. By the way, these information abut the trees would be made by the representatives of the forest management and genetics department.
