The project Nature Park 2020 - Visitor Guidance in Protected Areas and Local Recreation Areas of the Steirische Eisenwurzen Nature and Geopark aimed at improving visitor guidance and channelling visitors, guests and tourists in order to ensure a balanced coexistence of people and nature In three selected "Honey Pots", targeted visitor guidance with simultaneous knowledge transfer was to be designed and implemented. E.C.O. was commissioned by the Steirische Eisenwurzen Nature and Geopark to develop a visitor guidance concept for the Lassingtal valley in Styria, which on the one hand enables visitors to experience the valley and at the same time ensures that the sensitive areas in the region are not affected. In addition, a management concept was developed that enables a nature-friendly visit by means of a new parking and mobility concept.
