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.

Invitation to the opening of two new locations

14.10.2019 Let us invite you to two events to be held in the coming days. The first one will take place on Thursday 17th October at 10 am in Starý Plzenec, where we will open a newly reconstructed well "U cesty", which lies on a busy tourist route to the castle Radyně. On Tuesday, October 22, at 3:30 pm, the Křížov Quarry, an interesting geological and natural location with a number of interpretative elements, will be inaugurated near the village of Křížov in the Benešov region.

Contests organized by ČSOP attract more than 4,500 primary and secondary school pupils

02.09.2019 As the new school year rolls in, further instalments of the natural science contests organized by the Czech Union for Nature Conservation (ČSOP) get into gear. In the 25th Environmental Olympics, more than 500 secondary school students will pit their wits against each other, whereas more than four thousand children from primary and lower secondary schools will compete in the 48th Golden Leaf contest. Regional rounds of the two contests will be held in all corners of the Czech Republic to establish the best teams across the regions – who will then proceed to the national rounds, where the nationwide winners will be determined.

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.

A 20 – 30 cm tall perennial, its flowers are arranged in racemes of 3 – 4 heads, with sepals that are broadly elongated, and ovate petals that are a pale yellow. It grows in forest, particularly montane herb-rich beech forests and fir-beech forests. It thrives on fresh, organic, humid soils rich in nutrients, and prefers shaded to half-shaded habitats.
