Adventuring through the Drowned Land of Zuid-Beveland
The Oosterschelde or Eastern Scheldt is never at rest, always moving, day and night, come rain or shine. You’ll experience this for yourself on a three-hour excursion, where you will also discover many birds that live along the waterline and on the salt flats. And there are many fascinating plants, too, including samphire, sea lavender and common cordgrass.
Restoring the tidal landscape
Rijkswaterstaat and Natuurmonumenten collaborate to restore the tidal landscape in the Oosterschelde. By raising salt flats and sand banks, coastal birds like red gruttos, curlews and red knot have more time to forage. You’ll also learn more about raising the salt flats off the drowned land of Zuid-Beveland.
Please note that this tour is challenging and leads through trenches and over salt flats and marshes. You must be in good shape to keep up and wear sturdy boots and old clothes.
The tour is organized on November 16th and December 18th.
