We celebrated the 20-year anniversary of the Protected Landscape Area of Tápió-Hajta with the handover of a new trail, nature games and introduction of the last 20 years in the Tápió area. The event held in Tápióság was also attended by Bertalan Balczó, Deputy State Secretary.
of Duna-Ipoly National Park Directorate’s most diverse protected conservation
areas is the Protected Landscape Area of Tápió-Hajta, stretching across
the Eastern edge of Pest county. This barely known area is characterized by
picturesque swamps, steep sand dunes, dry pastures and flowering meadows.
Whether you visit this place as a visitor or a professional, you will be awed
by the diversity of natural values. It’s a barely known fact that the creek
Felső-Tápió is hiding here, which is one of the water flows conserved in its
most natural form. One of the largest population of trifolium hybridum can also
be found here. In the Hajta-area swamps, chances of spotting a nightingale, the
beautifully singing bird of the reeds are quite good. Each season is great to
visit here, be it about the Spring Farmos Frog Rescue or the Farmos Bird
Ringing and Migration Research Camp starting in late Summer. Of course, it’s worth to give a visit to
Duna-Ipoly National Park Directorate’s herd of gray cattle providing a
long-term maintenance of the diverse grass species of Nyík Meadow at Nagykáta.
With the event, National Park Directorate promoted this barely known, yet very interesting area. A greeting speech was presented by Bertalan Balczó, Deputy State Secretary and András Füri, Director of the Duna-Ipoly National Park Directorate. Following this, Tamás Vidra, Regional Manager introduced the past 20 years of the protected area in pictures; in the educational garden, the Gólyahír Trail’s opening ceremony took place.
In the afternoon, we organized a playful nature education event in the cozy garden of Papp Károly Primary School for junior grade primary school classes (nature games, trail tours). The event was crowned by a bird show presented by the Jászberény Eagle Center.
The area of the Protected Landscape Area of Tápió-Hajta celebrating its 20th anniversary is affected by several EU tenders. This project is funded through the EU LIFE+ Nature Program “Conservation of Dry Grasslands in Central Hungary”. The tender aims to preserve and restore high conservation value xerotherms in the operational area of the Duna-Ipoly National Park Directorate.
