Certified Nature and Landscape Guides (ZNL)
The NNA coordinates the continuing education of Certified Nature and Landscape Guides in Lower Saxony. These Guides design individual guided tours through their region. The colourful spectrum of their activities reaches from the pony hiking tour for children to bicycle tours along the Elbe and guided raft trips to see crane and otter.
Since 2005 studying for this certificate has been approved on a nationwide level by several partners. A cooperation agreement was signed by:
- Arbeitsgemeinschaft Natur- und Umweltbildung Bundesverband e. V. (ANU) (Nature and Environmental Education Working Group German Federal Association registered society),
- Bundesverband Naturwacht e. V. (German Federal Ranger Association),
- EUROPARC Germany
- and the Verband Deutscher Naturparke e. V. (VDN) (German Nature Park Association registered society).
For the implementation of the 70-hour course we work closely together with regional partners such as protected areas, communes or tourism associations. Moreover we regularly offer continuing education for a further qualification.By 2009, 126 men and women from the regions of Emsland, Harz, Osnabrück, Lüneburg heath and Elbe floodplain had already qualified as Certified Nature and Landscape Guide.
