For five years the Kreis Wesel Biological Station has cooperated with the Landesbetrieb Wald und Holz (represented by the Regionalforstamt Niederrhein), the Regionalverband Ruhr/Ruhr Grün and the Nordrhein-Westfalenstiftung to further NATURA 2000 and preserve acidophilic oak woods with bogs and heaths in 6 Special Areas of Conservation along the rivers Rhine and the Lippe. The measures implemented range from turning conifer into oak woods and removing neophytes to the restoration bogs and the creation of heath and calcareous grassland.
The two-day symposium will inform about the results and provide an opportunity to exchange experience in general. A morning of presentations covering the theoretical side will be followed by guided tours into various Special Areas of Conservations, explaining the implemented measures on the site.
