Hedwige Prosper Project

Two polders will be returned to the Scheldt: the Hedwige Polder on the Dutch side and the Prosper Polder on the Flemish side. As part of the Grenspark Groot-Saeftinghe project, brackish tidal nature – mudflats and marshes – is already the order of the day here. Read more

Doel Polder

Soon, together with the Middle Doel Polder, it will form one united tidal area as part of Grenspark Groot-Saeftinghe. Read more

South Prosper Polder and Nieuw Arenbergpolder

To the southwest of the Doel Polder lies the South Prosper Polder – a future lakes area with islands – and the Nieuw Arenbergpolder, where brackish grasslands will soon dominate the landscape. Read more
