Tasks and objectives of nature park work

Who we are and what issues we advocate for


Nature parks are large-scale landscapes of special character and beauty, consisting mainly of landscape protection and nature conservation areas. They serve the preservation and further development of the natural and cultural landscape with its flora and fauna.

They support sustainable tourism and create infrastructure and offers for recreation, environmental education and sustainable regional development. Experiencing and discovering the special features of the region play an important role.

Fundamental to the completion of the tasks is the continuous cooperation with the municipalities and regional partners with the involvement of the local people.
