Spring in the forest - a mini etiquette for walks

What could be better than enjoying spring in nature? We took a look around the region of our home base Lenzburg and discovered some beautiful forest walks and hikes. But the focus is not only on the beauty of nature, but also on sustainability. We would like to share some behavioral tips with you today - of course, these apply not only to the area around Lenzburg, but everywhere.

Before you start your spring walk, remember that the forest is a sensitive ecosystem. Therefore, take only what you need to avoid waste. Instead, you can pack a reusable water bottle and a cloth bag for snacks. If you find foreign waste in the forest, please take it with you and dispose of it later in a trash can or container.

The forest is home to numerous species of animals and plants and their protection is an important issue. Be sure to be respectful of nature and do not leave the trails. Also avoid picking flowers and feeding animals.

Attention: Spring also marks the beginning of the season for young animals in the forest. From April 1 to July 31, the legal leash requirement for dogs applies in Aargau and most other cantons in Switzerland. Out of consideration for the wild animals, loud activities at dusk and at night should also be avoided.

Sustainable journey

If possible, it's best to take public transport or a bike to the starting point of your forest walks or hikes. This way you reduce CO2 emissions and relieve the already overcrowded Easter traffic.
