This unique project arising near the fort Josefov close to Jaroměř in Eastern Bohemia aims to create first private ornithological reserve in central Europe. We want to allow waders and other wetland species comeback to sometime flooded meadows and allow people to visit the area and admire its beauty.


The backbone of the reserve is a unique, 100 years old irrigation system „Metuj“ which allows water level control after its restoration. To turn this restoration into reality, we need to buy the system itself and the surrounding meadows. We also create small pools for aqutic invertebrates and amphibians on our plots.

In close future, visitors could access the area using wooden paths connecting small visitor centre with several hides and observation tower.
