Osaby Nature Reserve

Osaby is the leader in biological diversity in the municipality. Many pleasant paths lead visitors to the ever-changing array of biotopes in the nature reserve. In front of the manor farm, the Hemmaängen meadow exhibits its beautiful midsummer palette of flowers and butterflies. Beyond the oaks and the pasture that surrounds them is a forest with many capercaillie, and a marsh, as well as the flat boulders and shores of Lake Vederslövssjön. Donk mushrooms, the snake's head fritillary butterfly, otters, black-throated divers, saucer bugs, and the cardinal click beetle are some of the species for which Osaby is noted. The birds here include black-throated divers, hobbies and spotted nutcrackers. The more well-known trails here are the 3.6 kilometre long Sjöslingan and the 1.2 kilometre long Hemmaängsslingan loop. See the link below for more information about Notteryd. This reserve is administered by the County Administration of Kronoberg.

    Explore nature towards brighter times 2021!

    Växjö Jan 01

    After the Christmas and New Year weekends, here are some suggestions on what you can do outdoors in Växjö during the first quarter of the year. Preferably take a trip in daylight which will slowly increase in Småland. Otherwise, use illuminated trails or put on a headlamp until the spring sun arrives. In the footsteps of the pandemic, nature is more popular than ever. Good timing as the year of national outdoor life in 2021 kicks off throughout Sweden. Continue to discover...

    Trevlig tur med flera mysiga platser att stanna och fika på. Det verkar dock vara lite förvirring kring angivna längder på slingorna. Vi gick blå slinga och fick den till 4,2 km.

    gula stigen var stundvis svår att följa pga bristfälliga markeringar. Stundvis fanns det ingen stig och det låg många träd över vägen. Annars mycket trevlig natur!
