Conservation and restoration of alluvial forests and bog woodland in Brandenburg

From 2014 to 2022, the NaturSchutzFonds Brandenburg [Nature Conservation Foundation of Brandenburg] is undertaking a LIFE Nature project for the conservation and restoration of alluvial forests and bog woodlands in Brandenburg (North-East Germany). The project includes 10 NATURA 2000-areas, located within three riverine systems. The NATURA 2000-areas are located along the upper Stepenitz (Prignitz), along the Upper Rhin including the Lake Stechlin District (Ostprignitz-Ruppin) as well as in the Middle Dahme Valley (Dahme-Spreewald). The overall area of the NATURA 2000-areas is 15.131 ha. 130 ha of alluvial forests (*91E0) and 25 ha of bog woodlands (*91D0) will be stabilized or restored.

Three quarters of the budget are covered by the European Commission and one quarter by the foundation "Naturschutzfonds Brandenburg" itself.
