Allerdreck Meadow

NABU 8

The project site is located approximately 7 miles East of the City of Celle on the northern edge of the Aller Lowlands (natural area region Weser-Aller lowlands) bordering with the area formed by moraines 10,000 years ago (natural area region Southern Heathland) in the Atlantic region.

It is a large grassland complex on a gravel foundation with a thin layer of peat bog on top. The peat bog hydrology used to be influenced by the water pressure coming from the slopes of the moraine and the dynamics of the Aller lowlands.

The site is crossed by several ditches and has temporary flooded Alder Woodlands, shrub, hedges and solitary trees.

The Tree frog is present with a few individuals only. By creating small ponds, we will aim for a permanent establishment of this species on the site and the wider area.
