Map & Poi's.

POI 1 - Flood area Moortsele.

This ecologically valuable valley area enjoys European protection as a habitat directive area. This is through unique forests with colorful spring flowers. The two streams that flow together, the Molenbeek and the Kerkesbeek, often leave their banks. They then leave sludge on which the trees develop. This makes this area so unique and valuable. The area owned by the province amounts to 33 hectares, half forest and half grassland.
