Naturparkhouse Biologische Station Kreis Recklinghausen e.V.

The Biological station in the Recklinghausen district would like to reach as many people as possible with her environmental education.
Since the end of 1994, the Biological Station has had its home on the former farm "Hof Punsmann" in the middle of Naturpark High mark. The farm grounds and the surrounding forest areas offer ideal conditions for comprehensive ecological educational work. Rangers from the Ruhr Grün regional association are also accommodated at Hof Punsmann.
