Greenhouses De Haan
In the dunes of Nieuwmunster, located in the municipality of Zuienkerke (near De Haan), you can find a greenhouse complex that can be used for research relating to coastal vegetation (dunes, salt marshes, polders).
The complex consists of 5 greenhouses (3 of which can be heated), 6 seedbeds, a site of 6ha and annexes with limited sleeping possibilities and an elementary laboratory.
The Coastal Division (Agency for Maritime and Coastal Services, MD&K) offers the use of the Greenhouses and the surrounding areas while the VLIZ takes care of the coordination of the scientific programme and manages the research equipment.
The greenhouses and adjacent seedbeds have already been used in the following research projects.
