Aekingerbroek - Wateren
In the 20th century, streams were straightened so that the land became drier and farmers could make the best possible use of their land. The Vledder Aa and the Tilgrup also suffered this fate, resulting in the nature reserves suffering from severe desiccation.
Fortunately, insights have changed and streams are being given free rein again. In Aekingerbroek, the consequences are visible: nature is developing. This is good for plants and animals, but also for the variety of the landscape.
