Humid biotopes at the country estate Kemper & Schlomski

Humid biotopes make a valuable contribution to establish, secure, maintain and develop the biodiversity of our cultural countryside.

As one of the first humid biotopes, the country estate pond which was destroyed and dried-up due to the flooding disaster in 2002 has been rebuilt again. The rapid development of the flora and fauna proved us right and encouraged us to take up additional challenges.

In the context of a biotope network project a humid biotope landscape was built in direct consultation with the regional nature conservation authority, the regional water authority, and with support of the landscape preservation society.

The increased food availability attracted storks that are now frequent visitors of the LGKS.

Currently in planning are temporary still water bodies in the forest.
