Kintulammin luonnonsuojelualueella soiden ennallistamistoimet jatkuvat.
Lauantaina 9.11. ennallistettavilta soilta vähennettiin vettä
haihduttavaa lehtipuustoa kaulaamalla (kuorimalla kuori lyhyeltä matkalta koko ympärysmitalta) ja katkaisemalla pienemmät puut. Suoluonnon palauttamisen lisäksi kuolleista puista tulee lahoamisen myötä olemaan iloa monille uhanalaisille lajeille, sillä Suomen luonnossa on huutava pula lahopuusta.
Kintulammin ennallistamisryhmän toimille tietyillä soilla on lupa Pirkanmaan ELY-keskukselta. Ilman lupaa luonnonsuojelualueella ei saa vahingoittaa luontoa mitenkään.
