Northern Gauja Forestland.

Section 12. Zaķi - Gaujiena.

The landscape of this section of the Forest Trail predominantly consists of wide agricultural lands and protected grasslands with large, solitary deciduous trees. They are particularly important for many lichen and moss species, as well as invertebrates, including protected insects such as the hermit beetle and marbled rose-chafer. Both beetles are the so-called umbrella species, which confirms the quality and suitability of the habitats to hundreds of other species that live here. The composition of tree species is heterogeneous: pine, birch, alder, spruce trees all grow here. A regards bird species, the European nightjar, barred warbler, Blyth's reed warbler, marsh warbler can be observed, among others.
