In Sagnagardur, which was opened in 2011, the history of ecological degradation and soil erosion in Iceland is presented in text and pictures. The exhibition presents the battle against the harsh forces of nature and consequences of volcanic eruptions and gives an account of the pioneers in land reclamation.  Some light is shed on the general attitude and public disbelief in land reclamation during the early years and a review is presented of the 100 years history of soil conservation and land reclamation efforts in Iceland. Furthermore, the exhibition shows the approach and methods applied in today’s soil conservation endeavors, and major schemes in land reclamation and ecosystem restoration are enlisted, as well as participation in international programs.
