This afternoon the wood sculpture tour officially opened at Resort de Wije Werelt. The ribbon on the sand badger has been cut by alderman De Pater. Many guests have seen the statues during the summer holidays, and some have even had the chance to walk through the magic disc + app Resort de Wije Werelt in search of the 8 different wood sculptures.
The 8 wood sculptures were made last year by 8 Polish students from the art academy. You can see that one sculpture is also made with a different technique than the other. What does correspond is that all animals can be found in the Veluwe. In addition, there is a sign next to each wood sculpture with an explanation about the animal in question.
Via the app izi.TRAVEL you can walk a GPS-guided route, and a question will be asked for each sculpture. These are not too easy questions for the parents either and a score is obtained at the end of the route. So try to get as many points as possible! When not only on the app, but also all the animals are collected on the magic disk, there is a present to pick up from the treasure chest in the reception.
“The great thing about the entire project is that it is not only fun, but also educational”, says park manager Ruben Averink on behalf of Resort de Wije Werelt. In this way we can explain to children at the resort, but also children in the area, about the animals in the Veluwe. Natuurmonumenten has provided the explanations in the app and the signs and there is even a wood sculpture in the OERRR forest. With this we achieve a common goal and that is to enthuse our youngest guests.
The tour is free for children in the park and surrounding area, and a small fee is charged for day trippers. On average, the trip takes about an hour, and during that hour Europarcs once again proves that it has beautiful and unique locations.
