Thijsse´s Wens/Wish
"Onze duinen zijn het produkt van onderlinge samenwerking van zee en zand, wind en water, plantengroei en dierenleven.Waar dit proces ongestoord plaats grijpt, ontstaat een landschap van wonderbare schoonheid en rijkdom, van eeuwigdurende bekoring, niet te benaderen door de allergrootste kunst van de beste landschapsarchitecten". Met deze openingszin begint de nota die Jac. P. Thijsse in 1944 schreef over het duingebied "tusschen den Zandvoortschen Straatweg en het Noordzeekanaal". In zijn ogen moest dit gebied het nationaal park ofwel natuurreservaat en recreatieoord worden, genaamd de Kennemerduinen.Jac. P. Thijsse heeft het grootste deel van zijn leven in Haarlem en omgeving gewerkt en gewoond. Hij stond aan de wieg van de Nederlandse natuurbescherming en was gelijktijdig een gedreven verbeteraar van het onderwijs. Het is daarom bijzonder dat na ruim vijftig jaar een deel van zijn wens uiteindelijk in vervulling is gegaan. Jac. P. Thijsse

"Our dunes are the product of the interaction between sea and sand, wind and water, flora and fauna. Where this process is allowed to take its natural course, it shapes a landscape of magnificent beauty and wealth, of everlasting appeal, which none of the best landscape designers could even come close to creating, no matter how hard they try." This sentence opens the memorandum that Jac. P. Thijsse wrote in 1944, a year before his death, about the dunes "between the Zandvoortschen Straatweg road and the Noordzeekanaal channel" which he advocated having designated as a national park or nature reserve and recreation area called De Kennemerduinen. Jac. P. Thijsse lived and worked most of his life in Haarlem and environs. He was one of the founding fathers of nature conservation in the Netherlands, but was at the same time a genuine innovator of education. All this makes it all the more special that part of Thijsse’s dream should become reality the year of commemoration of his death 50 years ago.

Bruid van Haarlem (Haarlem´s Bride) is the local name for the Rosebay Willowherb (Wilgenroosje). The dunes just behind the sign from question 6 are also called Bruid van Haarlem.
