Palatinate Forestry Society

The Palatinate Forestry Society is dedicated to preserving Nature intact. The results of its work include the natural and sensible organisation of leisure and recreation, a number of nature conservation campaigns in the Biosphere Reserve and an attempt to generate a sense of mutual understanding.
