Mieli lobiautojai,

kiekvieno mėnesio pirmąjį šeštadienį Kurtuvėnuose pradedame organizuoti keliauninkų apsikeitimo renginius. Pagal galimybes stengsimės organizuoti įvairias pramogas ir ekskursijas Kurtuvėnų regioninio parko teritorijoje. Mūsų laukia puiki erdvė draugiškam bendravimui.

Regional park Kurtuvenai Regional Park (KRP) is located in the South-Western part of Šiauliai District and the Northern part of Kelmė District covering a 17266 ha area. The park was established in 1992 with the aim to protect hilly landscape of Kurtuvėnai with forested and laky surroundings, its natural ecosystem and cultural heritage, create good conditions for tourism and recreation. Nature KRP is situated on the edge of Samogitia hilly land, on the watershed of the Venta and Dubysa rivers. In North-Southern direction the park is crossed by three ridges separated by valleys and lake scoops. 30 small lakelets are swashing and 20 forest rivulets running in the shelter of forests. Kurtuvenai settlement is surrounded by nearly 100 fishery reservoirs. In the western part of the park there spurt well-known springs of Svile, which are considered to be the biggest in Lithuania. In scoops of former lakes there are many little swamps. Kurtuvenai RP predominant forests are coniferous; its tessellated landscape is characteristic with high vegetation biodiversity. As many as 981 plant species have been found there. In the western part of the park some number of wolves live. Fishery reservoirs attract flocks of migrating birds.

As many as 17 reserves have been established within the park boundaries in order to preserve the most valuable ecosystems. Also, some habitats of European importance (Nature 2000) and key forest habitats have been separated for the same purpose.
