Miloterranean Routes for the schools of Milos and the High School of Folegandros

On the 14th, 15th and 18th of April 2016, the Milos Mining Museum organized trekking walks of Miloterranean routes for the pupils of the Adamas primary school, and the high schools of Milos and Folegandros within the framework of their visit to Milos.
On the 14th of April, the program started from Alykes, where 80 pupils of the 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 6th grades of the primary school, along with the teachers and the director of their school, were guided through the site by geologist Alekos Petrakis as part of the informational program aimed at raising awareness on the Alykes site. Following the guided tour, 44 pupils of the last two grades of the primary school walked the 2nd Miloterranean route – “Volcano” guided by Mr. Alekos Petrakis and the forester George Petrakis. The latter informed the children about the island’s unique natural environment making special “stops” in relevant sites of particular interest, such as Kedrolivado (cedar meadow) with the centenarian cedar trees.
On the 15th of April, 92 students of the 2nd and 3rd Milos high school grades, accompanied by their teachers, also walked the 2nd Miloterranean route – “Volcano” guided by Mr. Alekos Petrakis. They admired the geologic formations and, having crossed the Fyriplaka crater, they reached Kalamos where they toured the area of the natural vents (fumaroles).
The Folegandros high school visit of Milos island on April, 18 included a visit to the Milos Mining Museum and a trekking walk of the 4th Miloterranean Route – “Aggeria”.
The almost spring-like weather helped the children who walked the 3,5-hours-duration Miloterranean routes. The transport of the children was taken over by Imerys, sponsor of this educational activity.
