Association for the Promotion of the Barnim Nature Park e. V. (e.V. = registered association)

The history of the Nature Park goes back to the year 1990. At that time nature conservationists from the region had the idea of creating a Nature Park in the northeast of Berlin – as a joint project of the two German States of Berlin and Brandenburg. The founding of the Nature Conservation Station Niederbarnim that same year laid the foundation stone for this ambitious goal. In the year 1995, the Association for the Promotion of the Barnim Nature Park was founded. Then in the year 1999, the Barnim Nature Park in Wandlitz was brought to life.

The key areas of work of the Association have shifted a little in the meantime. Since the turn of the millennium, it has been actively supporting public relations work for the idea of the Nature Park and acts as project executing body for specific projects addressing nature conservation and conservation of resources, as well as environmental education.

A critical goal of the Association is to provide information for visitors to the Nature Park. A publicity column in the Bernauer forest settlement provides information, for example about bat protection. Display panels along the walking trails by the Rivers Nonnenfliess and Schwärze describe the specific measures and goals of restoring these waterways to nature and the history of their use.

The most considerable challenges consist in implementing two major nature conservation projects for which the Association is the project executing agency – the project “Ecological restoration and nature tourism development of German and Polish sub-basins of the River Oder” is devoted to protecting moorland and waterways. The experimental and development project “Hobrechtsfelde sewage farm irrigation field” is creating a semi-open woodland and leisure landscape from the former sewage farm irrigation fields. There is a separate Information Centre for this on the Hobrechtsfelde Estate.

The Association for the Promotion of the Barnim Nature Park is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Nature Park. Together with representatives of the States of Berlin and Brandenburg, the Rural Districts of Barnim and Oberhavel, the municipalities in the protection area, with public authorities, organisations and representatives of both business and society’s interests, it advises the administration of the Nature Park.

Further information is available on the Association’s website.
