The Maribo Lakes Nature Park is the first nature area in Denmark to become a member of the Europarc Federation. The Europarc Federation is a joint European association of national- and nature parks in Europe.
The EUROPARC Federation was established in 1973 with the aim to help protected nature areas and reserves fulfil their roles as protectors of nature and its beauty. Since the start, many persons have contributed to the association’s development and results. The Federation is proud of these contributions from all over Europe, which have helped to evolve the association into what it is today: an umbrella organisation for all protected nature areas in Europe.
