D’Naturwëssenschafte fir de Public fërderen

From now on, you have the opportunity to register for the first interactive MiNELL nature and science workshops organised by Minett UNESCO Biosphere together with its partners.

22.05.22: Urban biodiversity – discovering the wild flora of our neighbourhoods

Description: How do wildflowers come to the city? Through a walk in the city, the botanist will invite the participants to reflect on the urban conditions to which the plants encountered have adapted. How to find one’s way among the thousands of plants encountered: learn to distinguish the main families, genera, species and preferred habitats.

Date: 22.05.22 from 15.00 to 17.00

Meeting point: Bascharage

Partner: Sound-Ecology

Language: FR

22.05.22: Nature takes over

Description: How to make a vegetation survey? How does ecological succession take place on former mining sites? What role does it play in the biodiversity of these sites? After mining operations ceased, the sites were gradually recolonised by nature. Put yourself in the shoes of a botanist and observe the recolonisation of the landscape by plant species by carrying out vegetation surveys at different stages of succession. Participants should be able to walk and kneel without difficulty.

Date: 22.05.22 from 9.30 to 11.30 am

Meeting Point: Dudelange Haard

Spacialist: Laura Daco, botanist at the National Museum of Natural History

Language: LU
