Lutjewad tour + wadlopen (mudflat hiking)

Hello lovely members, 

On wednesday 22th of May we are going to visit the measurement station from the CIO in Lutjewad and explore one of the world's most dynamic landscapes, the Wadden Sea area. This nature area is an UNSECO world Heritage site and during low tides you can walk over the seabed with a guide. During this experience we will walk trough tidal flats and sanbanks and see this unique ecosystem up close. Next to that we will get a tour at the measurement station 'Lutjewad' from Bert Kers (technician in CIO with a great passion for his job).
