Exposition Waterdunen in Groede

From May 1, 2014 the exposition Waterdunen will be open once again in the Grote Kerk at the Market of Groede. Anyone can visit the exposition free of charge on any day of the week. The goal of the exposition is to showcase how the natural recreation area will be developed. The Waterdunen project contributes to the economy, quality of life, safety, recreational possibilities and the natural environment and of West-Zeeuws Vlaanderen.
Experience Waterdunen
What to expect? As you stroll down the wooden walkway into the experience box you will literally experience Waterdunen. You will hear and see the birds and capture a perfect image of the environment. The information poles will tell you all about the Waterdunen project. Through a video screen you can check out the website and a film about Waterdunen and be informed about the ‘twin projects’: het Zwin, de Grevelingen en Minsmere (GB). Children can virtually cruise Waterdunen in a boat through a video screen. Using the available binoculars you can search for the many different birds that live in the Waterdunen area. You may take a brochure home with you to read back on the experience.

Part of Natura People
The Waterdunen exposition is financed by Natura People, which is part of the European programme Interreg. The organisation aims to increase the economic and social cohesion of the entire European Union by stimulating cooperation. Natura People is working on and international network to promote knowledge and appreciation of the areas along the Southern North Seacoast. Natura people also raises and improves visiting centres and stimulates international sharing of knowhow between the supervisors of natural landscapes. This will boost tourism in those areas. The exposition shows the connection between nature (preservation), recreation, economy and tourism. This will contribute to the appeal of these areas.
