Thanks for a fantastic Conference

Written by Ivan on . Posted in Kommunikation, Projektområden

Almost ninety participants from ten different countries joined us for the international river restoration conference “Restoring floodplains, habitats and connectivity – using mussels and brains at Grand Hotel, Lund, Sweden.

During the first two days of the conference, 35 oral presentations, and about 20 poster presentations were presented (including the exhibitions at display), focusing on the three major conference topics: 1) Floodplain dynamics and habitats, 2) Connectivity and 3) Mussel and fish communities.

Indoor activities ended with a movie show “Life returns to Fylån Creek” (watch the movie here), a panel discussion and a conference dinner during the evening. The following day, about sixty participants joined us for the field excursion, which included a lab show at Hemmestorp Mölla (mussel rearing facility) at Klingavälsån Creek and trolley rides in the Fyleån Creek Valley, and presentations of the re-meandering measures at both these sites. Good fun indeed!

In all, we are very pleased to conclude that it was a great conference, with a splendid mix of people, all having a great spirit throughout the conference.

Thanks to you all!

Rekreation i Fyledalen

Written by Ivan on . Posted in Fyleån, Kommunikation

Fylan Meandered

Drygt 3 km av ”diket” har återskapats till en bäck full av liv…

Vi följer upp studie om förbättrade ekosystemtjänser* som resultat av genomförd restaurering av Fyledalen. Åtgärderna bidrar till ökad biologisk mångfald och förbättrad vattenkvalitet. Landskapet har dessutom blivit vackrare och rekreationsvärden har ökat.

Som del i studien är att uppskatta ”betalningsviljan” för ett besök i Fylan. Vänligen fyll i enkät på (vilket tar < 1 min).

Tack för er medverkan, och sprid gärna vidare//Ivan


* EKOLL genomför studien på uppdrag av Länsstyrelsen Skåne
