Half a year has passed in the meantime and our Advent campaign is still providing nice moments and encounters. Recently, we were able to see for ourselves that our donation to the NaturschutzbundDeutschland Gruppe Ulm/Neu-Ulm (NABU) literally fell on fertile ground.
During an excursion led by NABU Ulm in early summer temperatures, we got a comprehensive impression of the Arnegger Ried, a nature reserve near Ulm. The aim of this project is to restore the original pre-industrial lowland moor in order to create a habitat for the rare species found there. To this end, the area is grazed by cattle in the summer months to push back the overgrowth.
During our guided tour through the Arnegger Ried, we were able to convince ourselves of the impressive wealth of knowledge of our two excursion leaders. No matter what plant or animal it was, Diana May and Michael Rau from Ulmer NABU were able to answer almost any of our questions. And so this excursion not only showed us how well our donation is in the hands of Ulmer NABU, it also gave us a wonderful evening out and closed one or two gaps in our education.
