About the project
Kampinos Wetlands and Kampinos WetLIFE are projects aiming to protect wetland habitats in the Kampinos Forest (central Poland).
Drainage activities that have taken place since the middle of the 19th century in the Kampinos Forest have led to the desiccation of marshes and the withdrawal of many rare plant and animal species. At present, the progressive purchase of privatly-owned land through the Kampinos National Park and the disappearance of agriculture in this area lead to the situation that drainage network built in the past has lost its economic importance in many parts of this area. As a result, many actions are planned to adapt water network to the current needs of nature in the Kampinos Forest.
In the years 2013 – 2019, we implemented the project “Kampinos Wetlands”, where we improved water retention around small channels draining the Kampinos Forest. (more)
Since 2020, we’ve been realising the project “Kampinos WetLIFE” that focuses on the lower part of the Łasica channel (from the village of Bieliny) and on the Zaborowski Channel (more)
