The Environment Protection Month features free excursions on Kloostrimetsa Bog Study Trail

The Kloostrimetsa Bog Study Trail is located in the Pirita river valley landscape reserve. It was created within the cooperation of the Tallinn Environmental Board and Tallinn Botanic Garden. The 2.5-kilometer-long Kloostrimetsa Bog Study Trail informs visitors about the importance of bogs, shows a bog ore body, provides an overview of how bog iron ore was used throughout the history and gives information about peat mosses and other peatland plants. The study trail features a display of peat, informs visitors about the ways to use peat and its harvesting in Estonia as well as bog protection.

The excursion on Kloostrimetsa bog is guided by Marit Kasemets, whose master’s thesis addresses bottom dynamics of bog ponds.
The excursion lasts for 1.5 hour, and the maximum group size is 15 people. We recommend dressing for the weather and taking a bottle of water with you.
On Saturday, 12 May, excursions start at 11:00 and 13:00 on the parking lot next to the main gate of the Tallinn Botanic Garden at Kloostrimetsa tee 52.
