Capartice Meadows

Capartice Meadows are among the most valuable meadowlands within the Český Les Protected Landscape Area. You will find daisies and buttercups here, but also marsh orchids, butterfly orchids, and twayblades. In spring and early summer, Capartice Meadows look particularly gorgeous: not only are the flowers in full bloom, but the air is abuzz with countless butterflies and birds.

Management projects of the past year

12.02.2020 The NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme also serves to support management projects: unique practical measures to restore habitats or support certain species. Five such projects were successfully seen through last year and deserve to be given recognition.

New educational trail across volcanic chimneys of Baba (Grandma) and Dědek (Grandpa)

09.11.2019 The densely wooded hilltop named Baba near Mladá Boleslav, which has been a nature reserve since as far back as 1950, may as of today pride itself on having a new educational trail with an interesting concept that is bound to captivate adults and children alike. 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.
