Workcamp Donau-Auen meets Thayatal National Park
August 22 - September 4
Youth for Nature- Donau-Auen meets Thayatal National Park
The local partners, National Parks Thayatal and Donau-Auen oversee the protection and ecological development of their respective regions, with their particular biodiversity. Some areas in Thayatal and Donau-Auen need ongoing management to form sustainable habitats for rare species. Meadows and diverse dry grassland areas, need to be taken care of to preserve them and their ecosystem functions. The management of national parks lays great emphasis on environmental education and visitor management.
We will remove invasive plants to prevent irreversible anthropogenic effects on the ecosystem. Secondly, we will mow dry grassland areas and selectively remove bushes and small trees to prevent the forest from overgrowing these species-rich open habitats. We will also have time to get to know each other and enjoy the summer in Austria.
