Living with (your feet in) Water
On this cycling tour you learn more about the origin and history of the Rottige Meente nature reserve in the province of Friesland. The name ‘Rottige Meente’ refers to a small area south of the village of Nijetrijne. At one time this area was known as the ‘big peat polder in Weststellingwerf’. The waterlogged peat landscape that developed here shortly after the Ice Age attracted many wild animals and insects. It also attracted people, who came here to cut peat. In those days dry peat or turf was extremely important as a fuel.
Arjan Postma takes you to some beautiful places where you find out more about a landscape that consists primarily of natural elements.
