A Walk Exploring the Urban Biosphere // November 27, 2022

Investigating the relationship between Tegel residents, the biosphere and the city, in this walk we observe wildlife interactions in the area between the Flughafensee and the Tegeler See. For instance, we learn about human-beaver negotiations around the willow tree.

On Sunday 27th Nov we are meeting by Tegel’s Flughafensee, from where we will walk along the boundary between city and forest and take the ferry to Reiswerder island on the Tegeler See. The tour will be led by the project’s artists and researchers, with the participation of locals and experts, offering an exploration of the interconnected relationship of humans and nature and our shared future in the urban environment.

The trans-disciplinary “Biosphere Berlin” project team with Dan Farberoff, David Behar, Ka Rustler, Sina Ribak and Katja Arzt, invites the biologist Svenja Steinfelder to offer a guided island tour: “People, Beaver, Raccoons and other wildlife interactions”.The island of Reiswerder offers a miniature biosphere with four different ecosystems: forest, lake (Reiswerder island in the Tegeler See), wetland and garden.

The conversation will be both in English & in German.
