Moses Spring – Emperor's Stone

Thanks to the Armillaria chapter of the ČSOP and the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, the ecologically very valuable region between Jablonec nad Nisou and Liberec has as of 2010 its own educational trail, on which hikers learn interesting facts about nature, wildlife, the importance of forest land, and its inhabitants. Visitors may also put their insights and knowledge about nature to the test by answering a number of quiz questions.

Liberec's Opičák Forest Has a Restored Observatory and Visitor Elements

16.05.2022 Toward the end of April, the public was presented with newly refurbished visitors’ infrastructure in a forest known as Opičák, or Monkey, on the north-western outskirts of the city of Liberec. In 2006, this stretch of nature, highly prized by the locals, was bought up and transferred into the ownership of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation (ČSOP) as part of the A Place For Nature campaign. Within NET4GAS’s Closer to Nature campaign, it was subsequently furnished with a lookout point and other forest furnishings.

It grows primarily in deciduous forests and on forest edges, but can occasionally also be found on non-shaded sites, usually in alkaline soils.
