Lingen has many landscape areas worthy of protection – natural monuments and biotopes, nature and landscape conservation areas – as well as hotspots of biological diversity. They all deserve special protection. The registration and inspection of these protected areas are carried out by employees of the Environmental Department of the town of Lingen (Ems) or the nature conservation authority. They must and may enter properties (including private property) for this purpose. The town of Lingen (Ems) asks for your understanding!
