The nature experience path "In the land of Milan, Storch & Co" provides information at 18 stations about the animal inhabitants around the nature experience villages and their needs. There are also activity and observation stations: a brood observation pavilion, a large aviary, which offers injured white storks protection. Observation opportunities offered by nesting platforms, shallow ponds and wet meadows are perfectly fit for healthy white storks.
Silhouettes on which you can measure your own wingspan with that of a stork and red kite and an educational path for bees between stations 3 and 4 are also part of the tour.
The offer is to be continuously expanded. The nature experience path sharpens the view for the diversity and worthy of protection of a varied natural and cultural landscape in the national park region.
