Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Another 30 hectares of high moor has been preserved in the Witte Veen. We keep that with the help of drafts. The rainwater thus remains in the area longer, so that the peat bog does not dry up. The wetting is also beneficial for the swamp forest. Forest with a lot of alder and willow, as it used to be. And on the moor and former farmland there are about fifty Scottish Highlanders. With their grazing, they provide a semi-open natural landscape, where many birds, butterflies and insects can live again. We are also trying to better connect the Witte Veen to adjacent nature areas. With your support we can provide more contiguous nature.(natuurmonumenten.nl/natuurgebied/witte-veen)
