Four young people from the Hlas Lesa (Voice of the Forest) civic association came up with the idea.

“Our aim is to make places that deserve our attention more visible,” said František Baláž, one of the project creators, as quoted by TASR.

He added that the wooden megaphone should lure people to nature. They hope to support tourism in the whole region.
