FIRST, we meet at the Protected content at 10.20u (that way, those on a bicycle can leave it there and we'll be returning to that location). To arrive at the Egelopvang from the corner, follow the first path to the left into the dunes.
We'll begin walking at 10.30u sharpish and have a walk there for 1.5 hours, arriving at the right time at the lunch restaurant. There are Scottish Highland cattle that roam about, that we hope to see.
"To keep the dune landscape open and varied a herd of Scottish Highland cows has been introduced to the park. The shaggy haired cows walk about freely, which means that you can encounter them anywhere on the nature reserve. The Scottish Highland cows are easily approachable, but you are recommended to keep at least 25 metres away, especially when there are young calves in the herd."

THEN, lunch at Protected content at 12.00u, Strandslag, Protected content Den Haag. (pay for your own consumption)

FINALLY, a visit to the Protected content at 13.30u, corner of Savornin Lohmanlaan and Laan van Poot. (gratis, yet a donation will be requested) "The volunteers from Egelopvang Den Haag are committed to help sick and injured hedgehogs." They are open 1 day/month for visitors and are planning a special tour for our group at 13.30u.

Want to meet us for just part of the activities yet not all?
That's fine, let me know!

All in located in the same area-ish, count on walking for a couple of hours though. Comfortable shoes.
Thanks to Katja ter Brugge for the idea for this activity!
