Ever since my childhood, I have been fascinated by nature, both flora and fauna. As a Nature guide and Botanic Garden Guide I enjoy sharing my wildlife enthusiasm when guiding school classes or adults. I have a small private salicetum. I inspired and participated in the creation in 2019 of a Salicetum in the city of Mechelen (Vrijbroekpark, 'De Wilgernis') with some 100 different Salix taxa from all over the world. In 2019, I organised, at Meise Botanic Garden, the first International Salicaceae Symposium since 1991. My ongoing project is the safeguarding of a plot of land that was (illegally) used as a dump, on which different Salix-taxa have been growing for several decades, one of the oldest ones being Salix euxina, a rather rare species in the North of Belgium. Arboreta and Botanic Gardens are my favorite (vacation) destinations: Arboretum Wespelaar (Belgium); Meise Botanic Garden (Belgium); Kruidtuin Leuven, Belgium; Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam & Hortus Botanicus Leiden, (The Netherlands); Botanical Garden of the Faculty of Science, Masaryk University, Brno (Tsjechoslavakia); Botanische Gärten der Universität Bonn, Bonn (Germany); Royal Botanic Gardens Kew-London (U.K.);Giardino dei Semplici, Florence (Italy); Botanical Gardens Graz, Graz (Austria); Botaniska trädgården Uppsala (Sweden), Linnéträdgården, Uppsala (Sweden); Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden, Helsinki, Kumpula Botanic Garden, Helsinki (Finland), Tsitsin Main Moscow Botanical Garden, Moscow (Russia), Botanic Garden of Saint Petersburg State Forestry University, St. Petersburg, (Russia); Botanische Tuin Kerkrade, Nederland, Botanical Garden Nairobi (Kenya), Kirstenbosch National Botanic Garden, Cape Town, (SA), Botanical Garden, Stellenbosch University, Stellenbosch, (SA).
