6. SITE MANAGEMENT

Back to top

6.1 Body(ies) responsible for the site management:

Organisation:Länsstyrelsen i Värmlands län
Address:
Email:varmland@lansstyrelsen.se

6.2 Management Plan(s):

An actual management plan does exist:

X
Yes Name: Värmlandsskärgården
Link: http://skyddadnatur.naturvardsverket.se/

No, but in preparation
No

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

More forest needs to be protected from forestry. Controlled burning of forest is used in some areas to improve the structures in the forest but also to manage heaths. Several islets have been cleared from ingrowing bushes and trees, and some more islets will be done during the coming years. The site is included in a LIFE-project (Life Vänern), during 2014-1018.
