A restored natural area with streams, meadows, pastures and forests
On 750 hectares along the Rodebach / Roode Beek, in the Brunssumer and the Teverener Heide lies a rich natural area with streams, meadows, pastures and forests. The centuries-old wetland along the Rodebach was systematically drained for a long time, with straight troughs and barren agricultural land dominating the landscape. After a comprehensive renaturation, nature now gets its free rein again. With the renaturated river valleys and the extensive pastureland the development of nature has received new impulses. A small-scale landscape mosaic of nutrient-rich swamps, flowery meadows and moist groves develops and provides a home for many rare and endangered animal and plant species. Breeding birds and dragonflies benefit from the growing supply of reeds and shrubs, and the flowering pastures are an Eldorado for butterflies.
