Woodland and Wetland Mapping

Sunday Morning Excursion

Abstract

This is an opportunity for interested mappers to work together in the field in a variety of woodland and wetland (reed-beds, open water, marsh, etc.) habitats which are of interest to participants and discuss how to recognise and distinguish the features of those habitats in such a way that they can be mapped. The anticipated destination is nature reserve Weingar\-tener Moor/Bruchwald Grötzingen, which is about 10\,km NE of Karlsruhe, and easily reached by a short train journey from Karlsruhe Hbf. We will meet at Karlsruhe Hbf at 08:00 in time for the 08:10 train to Weingarten (Baden), Meeting point at the entrance to the platforms. The nature reserve is around 1 km walk from Weingarten Bhf. We will spend between 2.5--3 hours in the nature reserve. Return train at either 11:57 or 12:36. Participants are advised to bring appropriate footwear, sunscreen/rain gear, mosquito-repellant, and something to drink. Binoculars, hand-lens and tree and plant field guides will also be useful, although these will be available to consult or borrow. Follow @SK53onOSM on Twitter for updates and last-minute changes.
