The Recklinghausen District Biological Station would like to address the entire population as far as possible with its 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 area and the surrounding forest areas offer ideal conditions for comprehensive ecological educational work.
Rangers from the Ruhr Grün regional association are also housed at the Punsmann farm.

The biological station has an outdoor area of approx. 2,8 hectares with historical courtyard structures with dry stone walls, ponds, an adobe half-timbered house, courtyard fountain and cold frames. The barrier-free cottage garden and a raised bed that can be driven under should also be emphasized. Other elements such as hill beds, compost rent and nesting aids for insects and birds complete our garden area as a teaching and learning garden.
Unfortunately not directly accessible by public transport, the next train station is Lembeck approx. 5 km away.
By car: parking lot des Naturparkes Hohe Mark with parking for school buses.
The exhibition and the outdoor area offer ideal conditions for extracurricular environmental education for kindergartens, school classes and youth and student groups.
The biological station offers educational events for all target groups of the population by arrangement. The topics are closely related to the fields of activity and the environment of the station.
The focus is on:
Wet meadows, nature and species protection, pond ecology, soil organisms, forest ecosystems, changes to the landscape due to subsidence and other cultural and historical topics.
