The Walpertskirchen working group is planning many more nature conservation activities

Walpertskirchen - “We have a lot of plans again,” announced the chairwoman of the Walpertskirchen Working Group (AK) for Nature Conservation, Beate Aust, at the well-attended annual general meeting in the Büchlmann guesthouse.

The club is filled with life across generations by long-standing active members and new members.

“Constructing the toad fence is one of our main projects,” said Aust in her annual report.

Because of the traffic, it was “dangerous work,” emphasized the AK chairwoman and thanked the youth fire department, which agreed to secure the operation on site.

A hard-working team of helpers put up the fence along the busy road to Hörlkofen just one day after the annual general meeting.

The active participants wore high-visibility vests and also secured the area along the road with their cars.

A count should also be carried out to determine how many animals migrate via the toad tunnel to the pond opposite.

This year, like last year, the AK wants to carry out numerous plantings on municipal land.

All planting and care work would be coordinated with the community's environmental officers.

Dialogue is also sought with farmers.

The plan is to visit the Krimmer seed farm in Pulling and the World Forest in Freising.

The association would also like to take part in the community's 1275th anniversary celebration.

And next week the AK wants to carry out a planting campaign in cooperation with the Walpertskirchener primary school on the compensation area at Hammerbach.

In the summer, as part of the holiday program, a bat tour with experts is planned, which will take place at the Vogelhof.

The autumn excursion will take you to the Ippisch organic farm in Eichenkofen.

The many plantings on the western Hallnberg Graben required extensive protection from game browsing, explained second chairman Christian Schmid at the general meeting: “Nothing works without packing up.”

AK member Peter Kazmierczak also provided information about checking nest boxes in the municipality.

Of the 230 boxes, 145 are currently recorded.

The occupancy is 63 percent.

This number indicates a downward trend.

“The birds seem to be finding less food,” speculated Kazmierczak, referring to the decline in insects.

A lack of water in hot summer months is also a factor, Aust added.

The most common inhabitants of the boxes are titmice, sparrows and nuthatches.

“It's nice that the circle is so big,” said Mayor Franz Hörmann in his welcoming speech regarding the many members who took part in the meeting and thanked them for the work they had done.
