Limburgs landscape vzw increases visibility of a hidden pearl of nature
Over the years the Ballewijers pond complex has been almost completely enclosed by buildings. It has become a disturbance prone resting place for many animals, near the centre of Zonhoven. The area, which has a great deal of natural potential, was used as a dumping ground for garden waste and litter. The pilot project of Limburgs landschap vzw has brought the natural beauty of this area to the attention of the public once again.
The viewing platform and information panels will also be used for future communication actions about the nature reserve. The viewing platform is just the tip of the iceberg: Limburgs landschap vzw is even thinking of submitting its own LIFE project, which focuses on the Natura 2000 nature reserve the Ballewijers.
