The north-western part of Solska forest. Wet soils cover half of the area, which is drained by many natural watercourses, channels and ditches. Forest vegetation is dense and species-rich, dominated in places by pine Pinus, fir Abies, spruce Picea, oak Quercus, beech Fagus, ash Fraxinus and alder Alnus. Many stands have a natural character with some old-growth trees. Raised bogs and transitional mires occur in areas with little water flow, and were used in the last century for fish-ponds. There are 150 such former ponds, each with an area of 10-50 ha and a varying amount of plant cover.
Breeding species of global conservation concern that do not meet IBA criteria: Aythya nyroca (2-3 pairs), Crex crex.
