A cycle path with respect for nature
Nature provides for a unique experience but we also provide for nature. As a result of the Cycling through Water project, the roll-out of Bokrijk’s new woodland and landscape management plan was accelerated, which is only a good thing for the flora and fauna in the area. By opening the dikes, the ponds stay clean for longer, which is good for the habitat of the amphibians. And the heritage of De Wijers was given a boost too. The ‘monks’ that traditionally regulate the water management of the ponds were replaced by new ones.
'Cycling through Water' in Bokrijk is a project by Visit Limburg in cooperation with the Province of Limburg, Bokrijk, Natuur en Bos, Erfgoed Vlaanderen, Natuurpunt, Vlaamse Landmaatschappij (VLM), Genk and Provinciaal Natuurcentrum (PNC).
