How to revive the old part of the town Karlovac also known as Zvijezda (eng. Star)?
Karlovac is a city of parks, therefore there should be a plant species interesting for visitors of Zvijezda.
Vrbanićs park is located in the south- eastern part of the town between the river Korana and Zvijezda. It was established in 1886. by Josip Vrbanić, mayor of Karlovac.
Researching data about plant species growing in the Vrbanićs park and in cooperation with Zelenilo d.o.o. we came to the understanding that Ginkgo trees grow there.
Supstantiate the evidence about Gingko tree growing in the park Present the project in our school and our city Suggest that Ginkgo becomes one of the tourist attraction of our town
Students photographed the trees and measured its hight and diameter using the Globe protocol.
Students made Ginkgo tree using wire, starch glue and newspapers.
Students made fan- shaped leaves, wrote the information about the founding site, growth, reproduction and health benefits in the leaves which they glued on the three afterwards.
There is a difference between male and female ginko tree It can be recognized by fan- shaped leaves Resistant to low temperatures (-30° C) Tolerated polluted atmosphere Used as a culinary suplement Leaves and seeds are used in medicine to treat depression and asthma Ginko has slightly changed in the last 200 million years The first seeds brought to Europe were the ones brought to England It is contemporary to dinosaurs Used for its therapeutic benefits in China 2800 years BC
The 8th grade students found one male and one female Ginkgo tree in the Vrbanićs park.
Project was presented to other students and the participants of the Day of the Open Events in our school- primary school Banija.

The old part of our town needs to be revived therefore we hope the Ginko trees students found will be included as one of the citys attraction.
