    The fen on the slope of the Taubenberg consists of gale bushes with reeds, riding grass, whistle grass, moor lilies, sundew, peat moss, heather species and pines. It offers i.a. Habitat for forest lizards, field owls and the rare stonechat.

    Here, clay- and silt-containing, groundwater-retaining layers of tertiary sea sands spread out. The escaping groundwater ensures that the soil is always wet.

    The Gagel, also called heather myrtle, blueberry myrtle, tanner myrtle, in the Netherlands Brabant myrtle, on the Lower Rhine called Gruit or Grut, occurs in Europe only in coastal regions from Portugal to Norway. The up to 2 m high small shrub is bound to moist to wet, nutrient-poor soil and forms small, spherical stone fruits. Its brown bark provided a coveted tanning agent, its flower buds were used for yellowing.
