At the end of February we visited for the first time the quarry Wiepenkathen to have a meeting with the managing director. We got a very positive feedback, discussed our activities and planned the first visit with the whole project team, some stakeholders and cooperating partners for mid-March. At the end of our visit we took the opportunity for a quick inspection of the frozen quarry. Surprisingly we did not only found snow, ice and ideal nesting sites for bees and wasps but also flowers of the coltsfoot.
