Land Stewards

In the south of the Netherlands, Natuurmonumenten manages large parts of the stream valley of the Geul ('Geuldal'). Natuurmonumenten works together with farmers and aims to improve the natural values of the area. At the same time local economies are boosted as the beautiful area attracts many visitors.
Old orchards, often removed as they are not economically attractive anymore, are maintained and replanted. Hedgerows, which were once widely spread in the area, providing a space for birds, mice and many other organisms, are now newly planted.
