Liming with helicopters in Glaskogen

The Kalkningsförbundet announced last night that liming within the Glaskogen nature reserve will take place on Monday, July 31 and possibly Tuesday, August 1. This means low helicopter flights and the deposition of lime over various waters in the Glaskogen.

The helicopterpilots are doing their job carefully and always controll the area if there are any hikers och paddlers before they send down the lime.

Please don’t park your cars at the big lime sacks as the helicopter will go down there to pick up the lime.

Big Fire Danger

Right now it is very dry in the forest and land which means that there is a big risk of forest fire within the Glaskogen nature reserve. Make only a fire in our official fireplaces. Fire very carefully and make sure the fire can not spread. Always extinguish the fire completely before leaving the site.

Also keep in mind that shards of glass etc. in sunlight can start a fire. Cigarettes must not be thrown on the ground.

Keep track of any fire bans. We will inform here and on social media if a fire ban is introduced. We would also like to recommend MSB’s app “Brandrisk Ute” (in English), where there is always up-to-date information about the your current position. Also keep in mind that there are different levels of fire bans. So read carefully before you go out and make a fire.

Fire carefully and sparingly and have a nice time in Glaskogen! Team Glaskogen
