Work: The municipal forest in Achim is a popular recreational area, but also provides a habitat for protected animal and plant species. With your work, you support the employees of the environmental resort of the town. With hoe and spade, you help to remove fast-growing trees and bushes from the sandy grassland and thus contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and the native flora and fauna in this rare biotope. The vegetation along the banks of spawning grounds for protected amphibians also needs to be thinned out. Maintenance work on the nature discovery trail and in the dirt park, which is an attraction for young people, will also be part of your work.
