Just short of 40 participants from all parts of Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Bavaria gathered at the Schäferhof near Lake Dümmer to participate in a workshop on "Creation and Management of Amphibian Spawning Grounds." The seminar took place as part of NABU Lower Saxony's LIFE-AMPHIKULT project and was executed in cooperation with the Naturschutzring Dümmer e.V. (a local nature conservation and environmental protection organisation) as well as the Regional Expert Committee on Field Herpetology and Ichthyofaunistics.

An excursion to several water bodies near the environmental protection station (Naturschutzstation) Dümmer made the event complete. As objectives of various projects, the Naturschutzring Dümmer created quite a few water bodies for the European tree and Moor frog. Frank Körner, staff member of the Naturschutzring, outlined the goals and explained how the water bodies are created as well as how they are maintained. The entire workshop was positively received by the participants.
