Golfers and scouts make Nature Park colorful

Children are enthusiastic and thirsty for knowledge. Nevertheless, with longer school days, life in the city and planned leisure time, there is less and less time for environmental education. “Over the past ten years, we’ve noticed that children who are new to us know fewer and fewer plants and animals,” notes Paul Ziegenhagel from the boy scouts in Bad Herrenalb when he and his children Pack of great spotted woodpeckers on the Bad Herrenalb golf course sows wildflower seeds at the end of March.

The scout group is a guest on the small 9-hole course for the second time, which scores with its integration into the Black Forest landscape. “Last year we already built a large insect hotel with this group, it’s just going well,” says Sabine Zoller from the club board, enthusiastic about the cooperation. In fact, the boys and girls are excited about it.
