Together with the Czech partner organization ČSOP Ophidia, BUND Dresden is organizing the German-Czech Care4Nature Camp for the second time this year.

From 15th to 21st August 2022 you can travel with us to the Ore Mountains for a week and have the opportunity to learn a lot about meadow care, to discover the species-rich mountain meadows and to get involved in nature conservation in a very practical way. Together with young adults from the Czech Republic and Germany, we tackle it and, with a lot of fun and energy, we are committed to preserving biodiversity in the Ore Mountains.

What awaits you?

A varied program awaits you: the focus is on tending the mountain meadows with a scythe. Never sen? No problem: we have a scythe instructor who will support us with the traditional hand mowing. Practice all the steps of making hay and try out other biotope care measures. There are also technical contributions and excursions, and the beautiful mine grounds and their immediate surroundings are also explored every year. You can also look forward to a trip to the organic farm. There we will make cheese ourselves and enjoy delicious food. We end the evenings with games or spending time together around the campfire. Do you want to be there? Then register now until 19.07. on! We look forward to you!

Where does the camp take place?

The camp takes place on the German-Czech border in the Ore Mountains. We find accommodation in a pension in Oberwiesenthal. On our daily way to the care areas, we hike through the beautiful mine grounds with giant ferns and rare plants such as arnica, blue tarantula, fire lily and gaping monkshood. There is also time to snack on raspberries and blueberries along the way and to jump into the cool water on the way back.

The area has a long and interesting history - where mountain farmers used to graze their cattle, valuable meadows and moors were created, which have a high natural value as a cultural landscape due to their former use and are home to rare species.

The project is funded by the German-Czech Future Fund, the Heidehof Foundation and the GLS Bank.

Who's in?

The Care4Nature Camp is particularly aimed at young adults aged 16 to 27 from Germany and the Czech Republic. The number of participants is limited to 20 people. So register quickly and be there!

How much does that cost you?

This adventure costs you nothing! Participation in the camp, including travel expenses, accommodation and meals, is free of charge.
