The Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation has purchased a forest with a high tree density in Kuhmalahti, in the municipality of Kangasala, to turn it into a conservation area. The conservation area will be called Laipansalo after the legendary forest located to the south of the area.
The Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation’s A Home for the Boreal Owl fundraising campaign has been brought to a successful end, and the Foundation has protected the Boreal Owl’s Forest in Hausjärvi. The new, 16-hectare conservation area was found right on the border between the Uusimaa and Kanta-Häme regions. The forest has long been owned by the same family, and it has remained fairly untouched.
he fundraising campaign organised by the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation and the Foundation of August Ludvig Hartwall to establish and protect a Children’s Forest was completed successfully regarding the forest purchase. The fundraising campaign was launched in May 2021, and the purchase of a property named Arola in Suomussalmi was completed at the end of December.
