Register now for the Scalluvia Symposium from 13 – 15 June in Wissekerke castle near Antwerp, Belgium. The international symposium will close the project LIFE+SCALLUVIA and celebrate its achievements over the last five years. Partners of LIFE+SCALLUVIA worked with local stakeholders to restore 90 hectares of alluvial forests and creeks within a flood area of the Kruibeke region. The flood area was constructed by Flemish Authorities to make the region around the Scheldt river more natural, safer and more accessible.
LIFE+ SCALLUVIA has since been restoring degraded habitats in this area. The project has notably introduced a forest management plan and an accessibility plan for Kruibeke-Bazel-Rupelmonde, and engaged with locals to increase public support for nature conservation.
The symposium will share project results and offer participants an opportunity to network, take part in workshops, and join a guided tour of LIFE+ Scalluvia, a beaver safari and a visit to Groot-Saeftinghe.
