On Thursday, March 2, 2023, a check of the site with Early Star-of-Bethlehem (Gagea bohemica) near Hrušovský pond (Brandýs nad Labem) took place with 11 participants of the Písklata scout group. The expert supervision was provided by Petr Petřík, who explained to the children the relict character of the habitat of the legally protected plant and also the threat it faces. In addition to the ongoing removal of the invasive stonecrop, the bushes were pruned here last yeyr.
