It is vacation. Time to enjoy nature Let’s follow the ranger forester. I am never too old to learn new things. đŸŒČ🌿

We followed him through the forest at Beekbergen and learned a lot about nature. About trees, the difference between the Dutch and American oak. About pine trees in the forest for the paper industry and pines on the heath. About wild boar, we saw various traces. And he also showed tree stumps, where wild boars shed their fur. I saw elves benches, fungi and very beautiful moss species.

We volgden hem door het bos bij Beekbergen en leerde veel over de natuur. Over bomen, het verschil tussen de Hollandse en Amerikaanse eik. Over dennen in het bos voor de papierindustrie en dennen op de heide. Over wilde zwijnen, we zagen diverse sporen. En hij liet ook boomstronken zien,  waar wilde zwijnen schuurden hun vacht. We zagen elfenbankjes, zwammen en heel mooie mossoorten

Prachtig oud bos bij Beekbergen (Reeënberg)
