Görans dämme

Görans dämme (dam) is named after the farmer who in 2004 took the initiative to restore this coastal wetland, which, like so many other Öland wetlands had previously been drained.

Now here is open water areas over which the black terns flutters in the summer, and where dabbling ducks and waders have returned to. A platform has been built to facilitate birding.

Görans dämme is located just inside the coast at Hulterstads beach and is signposted from the main road in the village.
