About this event
Wild Eindhoven invites you to explore Gijzenrooi!
Located between Eindhoven and Geldrop, this area still maintains a beautiful traditional agricultural landscape. Small plots lined with hedges and tree rows, burst with coloured flowers this time of the year.
And, of course, full with animals and plants! This diverse landscape provides shelter and food for a great variety of species. Buzzards soaring above us, great-tits and woodpeckers climbing on trees, bumblebees buzzing for nectar, the familiar sound of a cuckoo close-by and wild flowers colouring the fields.
We will also walk through Riel, a protected village landscape, with its historical farm houses.
The maximum number of persons allowed in this walk is dependent on the government regulations at that time (at the moment it should be 3 persons +me).
There will be two walks during that morning, starting at 9am and 11am (make sure you register for the correct time).
Each walk should be around 5 km long and last 2 hours - depending on what we find along the way and how much time we stop.
The meeting point is close to the Bunderkensven bus stop - you can use line 12 from central station, which also crosses the city centre. Or come by bike (or car, there is parking around), of course.
Bring comfortable walking shoes (watertight if it has been raining) and, if you have, binoculars and/or photo camera (not mandatory!).
Looking forward to meet you there!
Let's discover nature in the city! Or its surrounding in this case... :)
