Learning from nature
For the first time, workshops can now be booked at the new ‘rangerlabs’, and the motto is ‘learning from nature’. Our ‘rangerlabs’ are research laboratories where you can explore, experiment and conduct all sorts of tests under the supervision of our National Park Rangers.

What is climate and how do the seasons actually occur? Why is the forest a ‘climate protector’? What causes landslides, mudslides and rockfalls, and what does it have to do with climate change? Simulations and experimental stations provide an introduction to a world full of exciting enigmas involving the weather and the climate
What are bionics? How is it that a larch tree is able to withstand the wind? What can we learn from bearded vultures, hawks and marmots? Together we’ll explore nature’s ingenious tricks and come up with ideas for new technological achievements.
What kind of plants grow in the National Park? How can they be used? In the laboratory we’ll process plants collected beforehand and then scrutinise them under a magnifying glass. Together we’ll study the exciting world of herbs from the Hohe Tauern National Park.
