Nature Conservation and Public Relations
Open door event
Open door event: Almost every year, the Biological Station of Hiddensee can be visited by interested guests and island inhabitants.
Children and adults are informed about the research projects of the Biological Station. They can learn about animals and plants on the islands and visit the buildings of the Biological Station. The event is announced in the local media and in the display cases on the island.
Cooperation with the National Park
The scientists of the Biological Station support the public information provided by the National Park on Hiddensee. We give presentations and offer guided tours, for example bird song excursions. These events are announced on www.seebad-hiddensee.de and http://www.nationalpark-vorpommersche-boddenlandschaft.de (both in German).
„Heathland days“ – events around the costal dune heathland
Every year, the Biological Station arranges the “heathland days” together with the association “Hiddenseer Dünenheide e.V.” and the National Park Administration.
More information www.heideverein.de (in German).
Excursions and management measures in the coastal dune heathlands
All courses that are arranged at the Biological Station of Hiddensee are offered the opportunity to participate in an excursion to the coastal heathlands combined with a shorter management action. During the excursion, the participants can see typical heathland animal and plant species and get information about origin, development and nature conservation strategies of the heathlands.
