Field visit to the Eastern Bakony Project area in the 2nd day of the international conference “Nature protection in military areas”

22.05.2014.

On the second day of the international conference “Nature protection in military areas”, field trip to the Eastern Bakony project location provided ground for the participants to explore, the protected and invasive species, the conservation actions of the Eastern-Bakony Project (LIFE07 NAT/H/000321), aiming to rehabilitate protected sand land habitats implemented by the Economic Office of the Hungarian Ministry of Defence together with the Balaton Uplands National Park Directorate, VERGA Forestry Co. and Aquaprofit Co.

For participants it was also a unique opportunity to ask the partners and their experts for on-site experiences and advice.  In spite of the bad weather conditions 3 sites were introduced and the rest of the sites and actions were presented at the military base.

At the next stops, visitors could see the development of fire brake zones, created under action C.5, which prevent fire spreading from the military shooting range to the protected forests. Moreover, the mobile fire extinguisher device could be seen, which was purchased under Action C.1.

Due to the extreme weather conditions, the second half of the field trip was relocated to the military base, where the consortium partners explained about the remaining actions. A round-table discussion in the afternoon was held about common European country practices (e.g. regarding grassland rehabilitation in military fields where unknown, abandoned explosives present danger) and about the most interesting topics and presentations heard on the parallel working group sessions the day before. In addition, the priorities and the possibilities of future cooperation were also discussed relating to the coming Life+ calls.
