Boda Kyrkby, Östbjörka

The limestone mountain at the Östbjörka nature reserve is made up of limestone formed by coral animals in the sea that covered the Siljan countryside just over 400 million years ago. Here are leafy spruce forests that are rich in flowering herbs, lime pine forests at the heights and in the hillside remnants of lime kilns used to make cement from the lime.
