Shovel after shovel, stone by stone (2013)

The Wandse is a small river in the north of Germany with a large biodiversity – but this diversity is endangered. Clearly a task for the STEIN TASK-FORCE 2013!

The mission: recycling of the aquatic environment. The well-trodden riverside at the popular bathing area for dogs in Tonndorf had to be solidified again and the velocity of the water had to be regulated by flow control structures.
So, with the help of shovels, rakes, barrows, gumboots, a lot of muscle power and cheerfulness, about 30 tons of small and big stones were transported down the steep bank into the river, where they were spread conscientiously in specific spots.

In short: The weather was fine and we had the chance to do something good for nature again – a great, successful day!
