In 2006 Naturefund purchased a 'Melic-grass' Beech forest in the Vogelsberg area. At the same time we purchased an orchard and woodland area, with rare vegetation and a natural spring. Our partner in this project is the local NABU group from Steinau who will manage and protect the area. Some of the Beech trees have reached the age of 150 years old. Many thanks for your great support! more
Start: July 2005

The beech forest lies in the Vogelsberg near Steinau on the road.
The Vogelsberg beech forest is home to a variety of species such as the evening swift, the great mouse-eared bat, water bats, black woodpeckers, the nail-spot and the cuckoo.
