Hejtmanka Nature Reserve

The complex of the natural alluvial forest of a similar character as in the neighbouring Vrapač NNR. Malá voda, one of the Morava river branches, flows through the forest. A system of river branches with a periodic flow and pools is created here. A few of minor anthropogenic humps, formed in the 19th century as a sanctuary for the game during floods, rise above a flat alluvial plain relief. A majority of an area is covered with the alluvial hardwood forest. Alteration of herbs growing in spring, such as Galanthus nivalis, Leucojum vernum, Pulmonaria obscura, Primula elatior, Corydalis, etc., is typical for this area. The predominating herbs growing in summer include Allium ursinum and Urtica dioica. Also important is an occurrence of the protected shrimp Eubranchipus grubii, which results from a generally higher number of pools in the reserve. The most typical is the Hejtmanka pool which is among the longest monitored pools in the Litovelské Pomoraví Protected Landscape Area.
