About

De Boschplaat, a 40 square kilometer area the eastern side of the island of Terschelling, is a “Natura 2000” Nature Reserve recognized by the European Council. It is locally managed by the conservation agency Staatsbosbeheer. Except when areas in the preserve are closed for conservation purposes, the public has unrestricted access to the entire property at all times, and eight locations within the park have been specially designated for nighttime visitors to view the stars.
