1st Danube Volunteers Day

With your help towards ecological connectivity –

Join the 1st Danube Volunteers Day in Passau District, September 16th!

Since ten years, the Danube River Network of Protected Areas boosts strategic cooperation for nature conservation along the Danube.

Rivers are more than wetlands! With funding of the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme, the DANUBEparksCONNECTED project sets new initiatives to strengthen habitat connectivity also for dry habitats. With the help of volunteers and your participation, these valuable sites will be managed and restored.

The more people will join, the more hectares of dry meadows, Heisslands, block fields and habitats for rare characteristic species can be preserved!
