The Wolf Private Nature Reserve has an area of 21.24 hectares and is situated in Prešov region, in the Čergov Mountains. WOLF has aquired the forest from a private landowner. The amount that was necessary for buying the forest - 3.2 million Slovak crowns - was raised by the fundraising campaign "Buy Your Own Tree" and help of supporters from 19 different countries across the world. WOLF has been the owner of the forest since 1998 with no human interventions taken in this forest ever since.

All things bikes, and bicycling are one of Portland’s biggest claims to fame in the U.S. We are rich in cycle culture and proud of it if I do say so myself! But what do we know of cycle societies around the world? Many of you lovely biking Portlanders may already know this, but there are others who precede our bike savvy ways, and go beyond what we currently offer. Shocking, I know, but it is true.
