National Park exhibition “Insel Schatz Ummanz“ in Waase
The little village Waase, located on the isle of Ummanz, combines the scenic indentation and the island and timbered idyll. The visitor information and a small national park exhibition are combined under the thatched roof of the ”Alte Küsterei”. The colourful diversity of the isle of Ummanz and the national park represent the main focus of the small exhibition that has been renewed in 2018.
After looking at the experience tips in the foyer tourists can start right into the reed. Small and large animals can be found in its thicket. That cross-country hiking in the national park is not a good idea is made obvious in the next room. Amazing nature photographs and videos show the beauty and the biological variety of the protective area, including cranes, seals and sea-eagles. Where do the greatest dangers or scopes of the biological variety lie? Everyone can puzzle over this question and weigh it up in a game. Which landscape weighs more? Where do most of the species live? The exhibition about the biological diversity was brought to life in cooperation with “Ostseestiftung”, as a project partner of the hotspot project “Schatzküste”, with the national park department Vorpommern and the community of Ummanz.
The exhibition is without charge and self-explanatory, bilingual (German/English) and suited for wheelchair users.
