Volunteers are invited to guide visitors through Hallerbos

Hallerbos.original.1101

The famous forest Hallerbos in Flemish Brabant, attracts plenty of visitors from Belgium and abroad every spring.
Incredibly beautiful ancient forest – it’s extremely beautiful and unexpected forest scenery during flowering bluebells between the trunks of giant sequoias.
According to the Flemish Agency for Nature and Woodlands, volunteer stewards are needed to keep visitors on the paths that criss-cross the forest.

Millions of bluebells, part of the hyacinth family, bloom in the undergrowth of the forest every April, producing a vivid violet-blue carpet of flowers. The natural phenomenon has become a major attraction for tourists and locals alike, leading to concerns about the state of the forest.
There is a ban on picking the flowers, but access to the forest is not restricted. Some visitors not only stray from the designated paths, they take flowers home with them.
Volunteers are required for weekends and holidays from 15 April to 7 May to guide visitors through the maze of paths and remind them about the rules.
