Deadwood and stone piles help create a new habitat

Ostschweizerischer Golf Club


Written by: Frenzy Huber

Using naturally occurring recycled materials from around the club, we've created a new habitat for numerous species. Cairns, constructed from stones, serve as focal points for all cold-blooded animals: Amphibians, Reptiles, and Insects. Among the stones, small mammals find refuge, with hedgehogs, weasels, and shrews benefiting from this habitat.

Furthermore, the diversity of species found in decaying wood is remarkable, providing an ideal habitat for some tunnel-nesting specialists among solitary wild bees and wasps in a disused area of the course. Wood decomposition serves as a vital recycling process, releasing essential nutrients that nourish trees, thereby maintaining a healthy ecosystem.
