In early summer of 2011 the riverbed will be widened in order to develop natural structures and dynamics. Moreover, a study will evaluate if it is necessary to reconnect the Saletbach with the lake Obersee. Relevant stakeholders have been informed about Econnect's activities at the Saletbach during an information evening in the beginning of March.
The Pilot Region is also active in other fields. Soon a study on amphibians will start and activities to maintain extensively used grasslands of high ecological value will be implemented in early spring. A workshop on landscape planning and ecological networks for regional decision makers from the German and Austrian part of the Pilot Region is scheduled for May 2011.
