In Peräkorpi, wet marshland depressions alternate with the embankments on the slopes of Lauhanvuori. Heather, lichen and pine heath forests share space with peat moss, rannoch-rush and sedges as well as low-lying areas of alternating peat hummocks and water-filled hollows. The amount of water in the hollows depends on the amount of precipitation, which is reflected in the groundwater level. In the summer of 2019, the groundwater level was exceptionally low, thus leading to a situation where the ponds at Peräkorpi were almost completely dried up. The surface of the ponds’ peat bottoms is covered by a pale dry layer, which looks like sand from the air.
