Oud-Loosdrecht! Loodsdrechtse Plassen!

This area between the Vecht and Utrecht Ridge was created by peat. Ditches and legakkers here ever had to win and drying of peat. Some legakkers have been swept away by strong winds and waves. This led to large and small lakes. In some lakes is naturally pure water seepage to the surface. This nutrient-poor calcareous water nourishes rare aquatic plants. The Vechtplassen are an important link in the ecological network, the lifeline of contiguous Dutch natural area.
