    The view from the directly adjacent canal path offers a great view of a wetland with fascinating development of nature and is a spectacle that is not particularly often encountered here in the Ruhr area.

    Directly from the dike of the Rhine-Herne Canal, you get a wonderful insight into the extensive mountain subsidence and nature reserve. Numerous species of birds and even a colony of gray herons can be observed on extensive water bodies. The biotope is a relatively natural and structurally rich area with dead wood for animal and plant species within the agglomeration. Due to their location directly on the Rhine-Herne Canal, parts of the biotope are relatively undisturbed.
    The 73 hectare wetland, where kingfisher and cormorant breed, is a rare wetland habitat in the area.

    In the north-west of Castrop-Rauxel, north of the Rhine-Herne Canal, there is a wooded open space complex with a large excavation site and an extensive wetland area that was created by subsidence and is divided into various sub-areas by roads.
    Southwest of Pöppinghausen lies the structurally rich forest area of the Nettheide, characterized by a near-natural oak-beech hall forest with little undergrowth with only a few developed herb layers, alternating with pure oak forests with a densely developed herb layer (from locally dominant blackberries with bracken herds and carpets from the lawn smithy. In the center To the south and south-east of Pöppinghausen, birch, oak and beech forests grow at groundwater sites, supplemented by a swampy alder floodplain forest.
    Along the Rhine-Herne Canal, extensive subsidence area with open water areas, extensive gray willow bushes, sedge and reed beds. The willow shrubs are locally towered
