CLEAR & CLEAN SLOWMOTION
The clear, clean water of the lake has been renowned since ancient times. It is quite common to be able to see down to a depth of 15 metres. The explanation for the clear water is a relatively small catchment area and a large average depth (40 m) which means that Lake Vättern has a retention time of around 60 years. This means that it takes about 60 years for a raindrop that ends up in the lake to eventually reach Motala Ström and the sea.
It was the clear water and the curiosoty whats lives in lake that inspired us to do an educational art exhibit about the unique lake of Vättern. In collaboration with the County Administrative Board in Jönköping and Photographer Zena Holloway we have produced this exhibit with beautiful pictures and facts about whats in the lake.
The exhibit is outside and starts June 28 at Samskoleparken in Hjo. Entrance is free.
A VIEW FROM THE PARK
The exhbit is located in a green calm park in the middle of Hjo close to the harbor if you want to se the lake in real life.
