The Nazareth-South nature reserve consists of marshy Alder-Birch brook forests in the north, forested swamp parcels in the middle part and some mowing parcels with a lot of botanical potential in the south. This piece of hayfield is mowed in stages. Part of the grassland is not mowed for a year. This can be a zone along the edge or a colorful spot in the middle of a plot. In those flowery zones, the herbs are given time to grow and bloom. This management method gives both insects and plants more opportunities to reproduce. In the spring you can hear the soft "alarm clock" of the rare grasshopper warbler here. You can spot deer and last year even a beaver came to visit. In addition, the living water of an old Nete-arm (rift) provides the ideal biotope for dragonflies, frogs, toads and salamanders. A wooden path leads you over the rift. The winding forest path is witness to a spontaneous nature development. This wild nature with curiously shaped trees is a particularly valuable place.
