Restoration works started at pilot action test site "Company reserves"

After two years of preparatory planning, ELCN project partner NABU has started the large-scale restoration of valuable natural habitats at the future ELCN Company Reserve north of Berlin, Germany.

In the past month, more than 10,000 m³ of degraded peat was excavated in order to recreate two ponds at the centre of the pilot site. These works, which are financed outside the scope of the LIFE ELCN project, will boost the natural value of the site and, together with the planting of trees, hedgerows and flower strips on adjacent fields, will qualify it for designation as a nature reserve.
