bremenports offers excursions to the nature reserve

After a prolonged break owing to the pandemic, bremenports is offering three excursions to Luneplate again in 2022.

Following the compensatory mitigation measures carried out there, Luneplate has evolved into an important habitat for flora and fauna. Because of the numbers of breeding and migrating birds, the largest nature reserve in the Federal Land of Bremen is now an official EU bird habitat.

The meeting point for the excursions is the information pavilion at the car park “Ehemalige Hofstelle von der Hellen”. Visitors travelling by car can reach the car park in Ueterlande via the L 121, Ueterlander Sielstrasse, leading to Alte Deichstrasse and then Luneplate. The excursions last around 3 hours.

The first excursion will be a cycle tour beginning at 10 am on Sunday, 22 May. Participants can cycle to different habitats in various parts of the extensive Luneplate site where the guide will explain the flora that has evolved there as a result of the various compensatory mitigation measures. They will have the opportunity to observe species-rich meadows and pastures during the main flowering season of this vegetation. The guide will point out various herbs and grasses and give details of the plant species that live in the ditches. With a little luck, visitors will be able to see breeding birds with their young. Participants are advised to wear weatherproof shoes and rainproof clothing and to bring binoculars.

The next excursions are planned for 16 October and 13 November.
The guided tours are free of charge. The guides are Thomas Wieland (bremenports)
