From building insect hotels to planting trees

The Nature Working Day takes place on 4 and 5 November in nature reserves, parks and neighborhood gardens throughout The Netherlands. There are all kinds of jobs to do that contribute to nature conservation and restoration. Think of pollarding willows, planting bulbs, building insect hotels, cleaning pools, winterizing vegetable gardens, planting trees and much more. Most jobs are in nature reserves, sometimes even in places where you are normally not allowed to go.

Good for the climate

This year is the Nature Working Day in the National Climate Week and that fits together very well. A healthy living environment is important to absorb the effects of climate change. Healthy nature helps to prevent heat stress and provides water retention in times of extreme rainfall. All jobs on the Nature Working Day contribute to the living environment of many (endangered) animals and plants. Thanks in part to volunteers, everyone can continue to enjoy a green and healthy living environment.

Fun for everyone

Everyone can participate with Nature Day. Take your neighbor, nephew or someone from the sports club with you to roll up your sleeves together during the Nature Working Day. There are also special jobs for children, so you can work with the whole family. Sign up now for a fun job or
