Getting to know the woods of Rheinland-Pfalz and Germany, general forestry in Rheinland-Pfalz and Germany, methods and aims of woodland management illustrated by selected examples, influence of climate change in the forests, natural forestry methods and new cultivation models, geology, natural conservation in Germany, environmental education and public relations work,.

The accommodation will be for free and will be in the “Wald-Jugendheim Kolbenstein”, a former forester house in the middle of the forest which is used today as a forest youth hostel.
