2015 in review for Eco-restore (4)

brown hawkerThe ecological restoration of the Lake Sagsjön in Sweden has been going for almost a year. The project is now completed and here is a summary of the results.

In the past, the lake received too much sediment from the nearby quarry of Jehander and was clogged with algae. Tons of biomass had to be removed and the lake shores were cleared so that more open water and shoreline can be used by birds and aquatic fauna. By cutting back vegetation the succession clock was turned back. Thanks to the installed visitors’ infrastructure the lake is now welcoming birdwatchers and anglers.
