national protected site
In the vicinity of the mill you can find the Koskela pastureland – a nationally valuable traditional biotope. The Koskela pastureland is a diverse and beautiful combination of meadows and varying kinds of pasturage (around 10 ha) on both sides of the mill road. The value of the Koskela pastureland comes from the diversity of the traditional biotopes and flora, several noteworthy species (13 in total), eye-catching matgrass and bristly hawkbit (Leontodon hispidus), and wild basil, which is endangered in the region. In addition, the area has a long and continuous history as pasturage, and also has scenic and cultural value.
