People in northern China turn waste into income while watching the reed harvest in Lake Hebei

Fajarasia.id – Green development brings big changes to a large lake in northern China’s Hebei province.

Baiyang Temple is the largest freshwater lake in the North China Plain in Hebei Province, and it is also the largest wetland ecosystem in North China.

The lake is home to approximately 80 million square meters of reeds and plays an important role in maintaining the ecosystem and ecological environment.

Reeds should be harvested in time for winter. If the reeds are soaked for a long time, sediments will accumulate and the water quality will deteriorate.

However, due to changes in lifestyles in recent years, local residents rarely collect reeds voluntarily. With this change in people’s behavior, the Baiyangdian local government introduced a policy of “balanced harvesting” of reeds. About half of the reeds are harvested each winter, leaving the other half for bird habitat.

Enhanced protection and restoration have greatly improved the lake’s ecosystem.

In addition, the harvested reeds also bring real benefits to the local population. ***
