NABU is carrying out the largest river restoration in Central Europe with the water strip project "Lower Havel Lowlands between Pritzerbe and Gnevsdorf". This is made possible thanks to the financial support of the federal government as well as the states of Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt - whereby the NABU's own contribution amounts to 1.6 million euros.
through accompanying measures, to which the states of Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt also contribute with the help of EU funds. In addition, NABU is raising a significant amount of additional funds here.
The Lower Havel is a wetland of international importance. We want to renaturalize the developed river and create new natural paradises.
NABU wants to reconnect old arms, remove bank fortifications, activate flood channels and establish banks and floodplain forests. In addition, dyke sections are to be dismantled and flood grassland to be gained for flood protection. Help create a haven for more than 1,000 species!
In autumn there is again the special opportunity to actively help with the Havel renaturation. NABU is looking for small groups of conservationists to plant willow cuttings together, maintain areas and much more– take part!
