In January 2013 Naturefund bought and protected 15.980 m² of riparian forest along the river Leine in cooperation with IG Forest and NABU Obereichsfeld. The Leine's source is only 3 km away in Leinefelde. The strip of land on the shore belongs to the Beuren monastery and has been barely cultivated for centuries. Undisrupted, the narrow stream winds sinuously through the valley. A riparian forest with old trees, pools, sedges and reeds developed. For the rare kingfisher, the dipper and other animals, this strip of land is nature's paradise. Many thanks to all supporters! Yours Naturefund Team more
