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.

Invitation to Vulture Hill

02.05.2019 Let us invite you to the opening of this year's first NET4GAS Closer to Nature location to Vulture Hill (Supí vrch) in the Lbín municipality in the Ústí Region. The event will start on May 9 at 10:00 (Lbín bus stop).

How NET4GAS Closer to Nature promotes hands-on conservationist efforts

31.01.2019 ET4GAS Closer to Nature is a long-standing success story: The programme has been running for twelve years now, enabling the Czech Union for Nature Conservation (ČSOP) to acquaint the general public with 92 valuable sites of nature, for the most part through educational trails, observation decks, lookout points, and other forms of mediated natural treasures, seen through an educational lens, or retold from the perspective of leisure and entertainment. Many locals, day-trippers, and tourists have since discovered these sites and made them their own. Few would guess, however, that the programme known as NET4GAS Closer to Nature goes further than that: it also promotes what is known as management projects – that is to say, practical measures aimed at the restoration of habitats or the stewardship for specific species. In the course of the last year, four such projects were successfully completed that deserve a closer look.

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.
