The public institution for the management of protected natural areas of Dubrovnik-Neretva County has launched the campaign to clean the trails and collect the waste at Velika and Mala Petka park forest. The action is being held in cooperation with the Croatian Mountaineering Association Sniježnica.

The goal is to clean the paths of undergrowth and the collection of mixed municipal waste in several locations at Velika and Mala Petka. The action will be used to emphasise the need for citizens to take greater care and pay better attention to the preservation, promotion, and protection of the forest park and the overall nature of the city of Dubrovnik.
