Trip of the month

Semanín Trail

Thanks to the local ČSOP chapter "Podorlicko" and to the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, an educational trail was built in 2010 at Semanín (a village not far from Česká Třebová) at the foot of the forest-covered slope of the Kozlov Ridge. This trail transports visitors to a different world. The six-kilometre route, with its ten stations, introduces you to the mysterious realm of the orchids, leads you past the atonement stone, teaches you something about the local geology near the slate mining tunnels, recounts the history of Semanín as a municipality, and makes a detour to the former army shooting range, where many plant and animal species are found today.

It was built by the local Klenice chapter of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation (ČSOP) within the context of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature Programme and with the support of the town of Kosmonosy.

About the project

NET4GAS is both a reliable and safe gas transmission system operator, and at the same time pursues a responsible policy aimed at protecting nature and the environment for future generations. The commercial operations of NET4GAS are very closely connected with the issue of nature conservation, as during both the construction and the operation of its gas infrastructure it must comply with strict environmental standards. In fact, its concern for the natural environment extends even beyond the requirements of legislation, meaning rather a question of corporate social responsibility. It is this principle which underlies the long term strategy of corporate philanthropy and sponsorship which has been implemented under the programme NET4GAS Closer to Nature since 2007.
