Princess Irene was surrounded by her family as it was her birthday last month. He has been advocating for years for raising awareness about the vulnerability of nature. "We'll offer her a forest later," Derksen says.
The 2000 m2 forest will be located in Alphen aan den Rijn. Yesterday afternoon the city council accepted Derksen's initiative and promised not only to deliver the land and the trees, but also to bear the remaining costs.
“We will just include it in our regular maintenance,” Marjet Heins says on behalf of the municipality. "The Irene Forest will be in the Zegersloot Park area we already wanted to start with. To teach school children about nature, Irene Forest will be divided into themed forests." There will be a forest climate, a forest and a bee forest. "
