Geocache Description:

Pienikokoinen kätkö lähellä Haltialan tilaa ja Ruutinkosken luonnonsuojelu-aluetta.

A small sized cache near the Haltiala farm and the rapid of Ruutinkoski. The area of Ruutinkoski is a nature protection area.

Ruutinkosken luonnonsuojelualueella on monipuolinen linnusto, kasvisto ja kalasto. Alue on satakielen ja muiden yölaulajien valtakuntaa. Kosken pohjaeläimistöön kuuluu mm. ancylyskotilo muistona Itämeren jääkauden jälkeisestä järvivaiheesta.

Pellonreunassa (n. 250 m. kätköpaikalta länteen) on yli 200-vuotias rauhoitettu kynäjalavaryhmä.

Kosken rannalla on 1700-luvun lopulla ollut saha, mylly ja muitakin rakennuksia. Siihen aikaan vesi oli korkeammalla.

Alue rauhoitettiin 1990 ja silloin sinne tehtiin polkuja, rakennettiin pitkospuita ja levähdyspaikkoja.

Kätköpaikalle pääsee Ruutinkosken alueen kautta tai Haltialasta parkkipaikan läheltä lähtevää, pellonreunassa kulkevaa polkua pitkin.

---------

The Ruutinkoski conservation area has a rich bird, flora and fish population. The area is populated by nightingales and other night singer birds. Rafting zoobenthos includes ancylys-conches as a reminder of the Baltic Sea post-glacial lake stage.

At the border of the field, there is a group of more than 200-year-old protected elms.

By the shore of the rapid there has been a sawmill, a flour mill and other buildings by the late 1700s. At that time the water level was higher.

The area was protected in 1990 and then some trails, boardwalks and resting places were built.

The cache can be reached through the area of Ruutinkoski or by following the trail by the field that starts from Haltiala.
