Voskresenskoe Povetluzhye Natural Park is the first and only natural park in the Nizhny Novgorod Region. It was created on June 10, 2008. This is a specially protected area of the Voskresensky district, allocated along the coast of the Vetluga River. It has a rich natural and cultural heritage. In 2005, the International Ecological Fund granted the Voskresensky district the status of ecologically clean territory.
Since 2014, the Natural Park has been interacting with RUDN University: in addition to organising practical training sessions for the students of the System Ecology Department of the Ecological Faculty, excursions, lectures and other events are held there.
