    • From Seed to Timber
    An interactive display on forest management “From Seed to Timber” is open around the year in Kauksi Nature Centre’s outdoor classroom. The display aims to inform visitors about trees growing in Estonian forests and how a tree grows from seed. Here you can learn about different tree species, their growth conditions, forest pests, and see how preparations are made for forest planting from seed, how the seedlings are cared for, and which tools are used.
    • Moss, lichens and tree fungi
    The exhibition is displayed in the hall of Kauksi Nature Centre. Mosses and lichens are very common, but often little overlooked organisms in our forests. While bryophytes have similar names in the Estonian language and also similar appearance, in fact, they widely differ from each other. Still, they have an important role in several plant communities and for human population next to higher plants.
    The exhibition provides an overview of the structure, reproduction, ecology, etc. of mosses, lichens and tree fungi.

    New building opening on 29 April! An old stable from forgotten times is a perfect place for an interactive exhibition. Whether you're a nature lover or have never left the city, there's interesting things to do for everyone.

    ]]> There is power in the forest!

    Have you felt the forest touching you?
    What is at stake in the forest?
    Who lives in the forest?
    Where does the power of the forest lie?

    These are only a few questions that will get an answer at Viimsi Nature Centre's exhibition.


    The exhibition is suitable for people of all ages, city folk and nature lovers. The exhibition talks about the benefits one gets from the forest as well as the importance of forest to the environment. The forest is an important employer, gives you warmth and inspiration, can be used as a gym and a shelter, a creator of beauty and a place for recreation.

    There are 28 exhibits at the exhibition, among them video clips, interactive games and many interesting special solutions.

    You can get acquainted with the exhibition by yourself or with the help of a guide. For groups of children we have prepared special educational programs. The exhibition is in Estonia, English and Russian.

    The idea for the new exhibition came from the exhibition "Footprint in the forest" that circled Estonia in 2008-2010. When the exhibition had finished it's travels we got the idea to put it in our nature centre, but it turned out to be too big for the old barn house. At the same time there was the opportunity to apply for funding from the European Regional Development Fund. After the positive response for funding a contest to find the best idea for the exhibition was announced. The winner of the contest was an idea named "The Power of the Forest" by Annes Arro and Hanna Karits.

    The renovation project for the building was done by Tartu Arhitektuuribüroo and the work was done by Sulane OÜ. The exhibition was made in the cooperation of Ten Twelve OÜ, creative agency Pult and The Systems OÜ. The exhibits were built by Red Hat Group Design OÜ, and the furniture by Supra Mööbel OÜ. In addition many employees of the State Forest Management Centre gave there input for the exhibition.

    The project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund's measure "Development of Environmental Education Infrastructure".

    There are beautiful sand and pebble beaches and dunes on Harilaid. The sea is continually reshaping the coastline. If you visit the place repeatedly, you will see the coastline changes with your own eyes. There are several freshwater lakes in the peninsula, the largest of which is Laialepa bay. In addition to its interesting landscape, Harilaid is an area of great botanical and zoological value. It has been a protected area since 1924 already. Harilaid has always been uninhabited and when you go there it feels as if you have reached the end of the world, somewhere far away from civilization, and you are at the mercy of natural forces. To go to the campsite at Laialepa bay, you have to walk about 4 km along a hiking trail. At the other side of the campsite is the open sea.

    • The Fifth Season 2010
    The fifth season of 2010 was special – such water expanse had not been seen in Soomaa for over fifty years, remaining just below the flood of 1956.
    Also the roads were flooded, causing problems to local people both for the water damage to animals and buildings, as well as for the things washed away or scattered by the high water. All this can be seen in the exhibition in Soomaa Nature Centre. The authors of the exhibition are Sandra Kübarsepp, Algis and Stella Martsoo.

    The National Park was established to preserve, protect, research and introduce the large bogs, flooded meadows, forests, landscapes and cultural heritage, and the balanced use of the environment in Central Estonia.
    Here you can explore large bogs, floodplain forests and flooded meadows and the cultural history, and experience the fifth season of Soomaa – the flood. The hiking trails and observation towers of the National Park provide a good opportunity for that.
