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.

Two New Closer to Nature Sites in Areas of Říčany and Třebíč Opened This Weekend

25.11.2021 Two new sites supported by the Closer to Nature programme, a collaboration of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation and its general partner NET4GAS, were opened to the public in mid-November: The new Pod Dubinami orchard near Říčany, and a new educational trail named after the Bělina Valley (Bělinské údolí) in the Třebíč area.

Wondrous Nooks and Crannies Hidden Away Near Chorušice

01.11.2021 In the southeasternmost corner of the Kokořínsko area, not far from Mšeno, where the forest covers ravines cut deep into the surrounding landscape, the newly-opened educational trail Chorušická zákoutí weaves its way through the countryside, leading visitors to various nooks and crannies hidden away between the municipality of Chorušice and its satellite, the tiny hamlet of Zahájí. The trail, which measures a little over four kilometres in length, was built by the local Koniklec chapter of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation (ČSOP) under the auspices of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, and with a friendly contribution from the municipality of Chorušice.
