Biosphere Reserve Management Center, which we spent about 6 billion won, is almost ready to open and it is going to help to reserve, devleop, and support us in more systematic way.
Also we are investing 7 billion won to restore ecological system of mud flat around Simwon-myeon, and investing 22 billion won to restore ecology of Sunwooncuhn river and Hawoonchun river to establish a healthy geological area.
After these developments, county residents around Gochang mud flat and Ungok wetland are getting income by selling local food and agricultural products, and running other tourism business.
