Seventh Edition Natur im Wort

While there were still around 2,000 apple varieties in Styria at the beginning of the 20th century, this changed drastically from the middle of the 20th century for economic reasons: many fruit trees were felled, the landscape changed its face from one day to the next. As a result, varieties, types and clones irreversibly disappeared. Fortunately, however, a trend reversal can be seen since the last 30 years. Old varieties are becoming increasingly popular and planted again. In Styria in particular, an extraordinary amount is happening around fruit tree plantings and variety conservation, which is why the seventh edition of the Styrian nature conservation newspaper also focuses on Schafsnase, Maschanzker & Co.

This year's and ongoing nature conservation initiatives in Styria offer exciting stories of human connections to nature and allow interesting changes of perspective. But read for yourself, for example about rings telling stories, or about a farmer who became an expert on grasshoppers, etc.

The newspaper is addressed to the broad public, explains nature conservation contexts in lively language and shows how diverse the activities around nature are in Styria. It is intended to motivate people to become part of this large, committed community of nature conservationists.

Suske Consulting is responsible for the editorial editing of the quarterly newspaper "Natur im Wort" of the nature conservation department of the Province of Styria. The newspaper has a circulation of 15,000 copies and is available for free at various locations in Styria. Digital editions are available on the project page and on the Styrian media page.
