Bergwaldprojekt - Mountain Forest Project
The foundation has a non-profit purpose: to promote the maintenance, care and protection of the forest and the cultural landscape in mountain regions, especially through care and restoration during work assignments and by encouraging the public's understanding for the forest's concerns.
Instead of being debated about, the forest should be experienced in the forest. Through practical forest work, the participants get to know firsthand the habitat of the mountain forest as well as its chances and problems. The work is done in close co-operation with the local forestry services.
