The Toivakka region of Central Finland is a home for the Korvenkehto area of thick forest whose trees are still growing. It is an area that was left to us in 2016 according to a will by a man named Mikko Hakanen, a great forest lover who ringed birds. The place has an area of approximately 10 hectares. It is characterized by grove-like heath. The younger forest contains great aspens enjoyed also by flying squirrels. The fields are turning into forests of deciduous trees.
The area was preserved as part of the “My Gift to the Hundred-Year-Old” campaign arranged to celebrate the 100 years of Finland’s independence.
