Locations in the care of the association

logo.png

Since 2010, the association has focused on long-term care for localities with the occurrence of passerines, later localities that are home to other specially protected species of plants and animals were added.

  These are small localities without formal protection, but having a high natural and landscape value or at least potential, as well as small protected areas up to a part of the national nature reserve. Most localities are located on the border of the South Moravian Region and the Vysočina Region and are of a steppe character. 

01

Doubek
(k. ú. Lhánice)

The registered important landscape element Doubek is located in the cadastral area of Lhánice, about 1 km west of the village center. The locality has the character of an island of woody plants with steppe fallow in the middle of agriculturally farmed areas. The terrain here is undulating and rocky. After the extraction of aggregates, a number of deep depressions and unevenness remained at the site. Approximately half of the area is occupied in places by a loose mixed grove with a predominance of forest pine and winter oak. On the perimeter and especially in the western and southern part of the territory there is a grassy ice. The site represents the habitat of several specially protected species of plants and animals, which are also included in the Red Lists. These are, in particular, the large-flowered passerine (Pulsatilla grandis), the Czech buttercup (Gagea bohemica), the white-tailed deer (Dictamnus albus), and the crested muscari (Muscari comosum). Among the rarer animals, for example, the green lizard (Lacerta viridis) and the praying mantis (Mantis religiosa) occur in the locality. Regular care carried out by the association in cooperation with the municipality of Lhánice consists in the gradual mowing of herbaceous vegetation. When mowing, individual flowering herbs or smaller areas with flowering vegetation are always left in places. Occasionally there is a sensitive cutting or pruning of woody plants in order to preserve the desired character of the site and sufficient sun exposure of areas with valuable vegetation. We built several stone walls for reptiles on the site and placed two smaller natural benches. Every year, we also remove discovered historical and recent municipal waste.

Hájky
(cadastral district Slavětice)

The Hájky locality is located in the Slavětice cadastral district, about 1.5 km southeast of the village center. It is a wide border with steppe frost above the Olešná stream. About 200 m north of the locality there is another smaller naturally valuable limit under the forest. Both places are habitats of important plant subxerothermophytes, especially Gagea bohemica, Pulsatilla grandis and Muscari comosum. There are also a number of invertebrate species, such as the mantis (Mantis religiosa). Regular care carried out by the association in cooperation with the municipality of Slavětice consists in mowing the herbaceous vegetation while leaving flowering herbs or smaller areas with flowering vegetation. Occasionally there is a sensitive pruning of woody plants in order to perform mowing + cleaning of the fallen wood mass. We built a stone wall on the site and placed several landfills for reptiles. Above the northern smaller border, we installed a box for the crested hoopoe (Upupa epops).
