The BUND Naturschutz maintains an area near Burk that is part of a raised bog. Woody plants are regularly removed to prevent the bog from drying out further.
The BUND Naturschutz chapter Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen regularly mowes areas in the Ellbachmoor and cleares the area of shrubs.
The BUND Naturschutz frees areas of the Dümfelmoos from woody plants and rewets them. This should enable the moor to grow again and thus contribute to climate and species protection.
In the 19th century the Saalach, like many other rivers, was straightened. The resulting increase in the discharge velocity caused an increased removal of rocks from the river bed. This resulted in a gradual deepening of the river bed. The floodplain area was flooded less and less often and habitats typical for the floodplain forest disappeared more and more.In the 1980s the problem was recognized and restoration began. Since it was no longer possible to return the Saalach to a natural watercourse, inflowing streams were dammed in the area and channelled into the alluvial forest.
Due to the drainage of the bog at the Elbsee, more and more trees (mostly spruces) could settle. In order to revive the bog, the spruces were felled, because they would draw water from the bog. The drainage ditch was closed with boards, so that the water could adjust itself again to a height agreed upon with the property neighbors.
BUND Naturschutz has carried out restoration work on 3.6 hectares of its own land in cooperation with the Life Project in the Kendlmühlfilzen. A total of about 40 dams were built by hand.
Meanwhile completed supra-regional project mainly for the conservation of the habitats of the corncrake, other meadow breeders and the litter meadow flora at Lake Chiemsee. LIFE-Project No. 1 (1995/1996): Main contents: Restoration of raised bogs and improvement of the habitat for meadow breeders (especially corncrake). The measures are based on land acquisition, one-time biotope improvement measures (with or without previous land acquisition) and public management by the project leader. LIFE-Project No.
The chapter Hohenpeißenberg and Peiting of the BUND Naturschutz were involved in the past in the restoration of the nature reserve Schwarzlaichmoor. The black spawn bog was used for peat extraction over many decades, which is why there are particularly extensive peat cutting sites here. These had to be wetted again. The large dams were effectively built with excavators in 2006, the smaller ones by hand. In total, well over 100 dams with a wetting area of around 20 hectares have been built so far.
The BUND Naturschutz restored some areas of the Höfner Filz in 2005. Drainage ditches were closed and interrupted, emerging spruce stands were removed and a terrain level was adjusted to connect the area with an area already restored in 1993.
To improve the ecological situation at the Reitbach, the section below the new flood control reservoir was redisgned close to nature. 5 drop structures were replaced by river bed ramps to improve fish migration.
