Inauguration of youth nature watch

Week number 51-28

Newsreels in which Dutch subjects of a certain week are presented.


A nature watch is inaugurated in Heemstede. The watch consists of boys and girls that solemnly promise not to ruin nature and motivate others to do the same. SHOTS: - A canal and a park with high trees in a residential neighbourhood (in Heemstede?); - some boys and girls demonstrate what not to do: two boys roll around fighting through a flowerbed or destroy a turf when they're looking for worms for their fishing rod; girls use a recently trimmed hedge as a seat; - the bark of a tree has been destroyed; - a large group of boys and grisl has gathered on a soccer pitch; mayor mr. A.G.A. ridder van Rappard pins a badge on all of them; - some young nature watchers correct bad behaviour: a girl reprimands a woman who's picking flowers in the city park; a boy send a man away from the lawn.
