Metsähallitus is actively involved in developing Finland's second UNESCO Global Geopark. The status achieved in 2020 is a major accomplishment for the people, tourism and business of the region.
The Geopark area is located in the area of nine municipalities on the borders of Satakunta, Southern Ostrobothnia and Pirkanmaa provinces. Geopark is managed by the Lauhanvuori-Hämeenkangas Geopark Association, which is maintained by the municipalities and in which Metsähallitus is involved as a partner.
Geological and nature sites are mostly located on land owned by Metsähallitus. Most of the sites are managed by Metsähallitus' Parks and Wildlife Services. The digital guidance material on sites has been implemented using this Metsähallitus mobile guide.
