8. EIKELMUISWANDELING* (4 KM)

Interactieve wandeling in Marke met QR codes

De eikelmuis is een klein lief diertje dat er schattig uitziet. Het brengt de dagen voornamelijk door met slapen. Als niemand het ziet zal het op onverwachte momenten fruit stelen, om dan met een rondgevuld buikje weer te slapen. De eikelmuis wordt daarom ook wel eens het fruitdiefje genoemd.

Het is een bedreigde diersoort. Deze wandeling toont wat jij kan doen om deze soort te beschermen. Tal van interactieve punten nodigen uit om te ontdekken met je smartphone.

Route

De route van 3 à 4 kilometer kan je op om het even waar starten op de wandellus met eikelmuiswegwijzers die de weg tonen. De start- en stopplaatsen in Marke zijn aan de Hellestraat, bij de Dr. Vannestestraat, midden in het Preshoekbos, op een stukje afwijkend van het Markebekepad, bij de Pater Omer Devosstraat en op het Lazaretpad.
