Through Landscape of Floods
The topics addressed by the nine stations along the trail are highly diverse indeed; the idea is to construe the aquatic system and the activities (cultivation, land use) by human beings as the two basic, complementary prerequisites for preserving the biodiversity of the local landscape. Along its 4.5 km track, the trail teaches curious hikers in an entertaining and playful way about the local nature, which several times each year completely submits to the rule of the element of water. Info panels tell the visitor about the past and present of the floodplains and their powerful mistress - the Oder River, known among other things for their role in protecting the greater Ostrava area from floods. Each station uses straightforward stories and curious facts to describe the individual habitats and protected species, often within the positive context of human economic activity. The educational and fun value of the stations is further enhanced by relevant play installations.
The educational trail "Through landscape of floods" was built by the local Studénka chapter of ČSOP in 2014, drawing upon the support of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme.
