The long life of a yew tree
15.01.13Category: Members News
In the summer of 2012 the Frankenwaldverein, which has its headquarters in Naila, Germany, carried out an environmental protection campaign.
This took place in the Frankenwald National Park where a trail designated the “Eibeweg” runs through the forest at Schwarzenbach am Wald. The section of the trail is named ‘The long life of a yew tree’.
The aim of the campaign was to ensure the conservation of the yew and to improve the appearance of this trail for walkers. This goal was successfully achieved.
That is why Lis Nielsen - the president of ERA - was in Schwarzenbach am Wald on 24.11.2012 to hand over the Eco-Award 2012’s Special prize to Robert Strobel, the President of the Frankenwaldverein.
This ceremony was part of a recognition event where several members of the Frankenwaldverein received medals for their work in the organisation.
The Eco-Award are founded in 2011 together with our partner the GDF SUEZ Foundation.
