Diera-Zehren / Wet Meadow

Project AreaMeissen District
AcquisitionFebruary 2006
Size3.24 ha
StatusBiotope Protection (§26 SächsNatSchG)   

Importance as a Natural Protected Area:

The state-wide selective mapping of biotope protection shows sedge and bulrush rich wet meadows, stocks of reeds, sedge fens and tall perennial herb meadows. In wet areas you can see the development of an alder fen woodland. This wet biotope is an important element in the biotope network system along the stream “Wölkisches Wasser“.


The area is of great importance from a species protection point of view, due to the number of occurrences of endangered bird species such as jack snipe, pied wagtail and reed bunting, which use the area as a resting site. This strong population can be attributed to the high numbers of amphibians (for example crested newts, spring frogs and green toads) in the Meissen district.


By acquiring the sites, the LaNU Nature Protection Fund has ensured the long term preservation of this area in the context of nature protection.


Conservation and Development:

The is right in the middle of the Lommatzscher agricultural landscape and directly beside the town of Naundorf.


A number of maintenance and development recommendations have been developed for step by step implementation over the next few years, developed by the nature protection authorities in the Meissen District.


As part of a compensating measure for the OPAL natural gas pipeline, 28 old tall, old, local fruit were planted in the higher lying ground around the area in Spring 2011.


In order to keep this area open, the meadow is cut once or twice a year.
