The flat western shore of the Oder features several levees, which in order to control the water level and to prevent highfloods are regularly opened in winter and spring. The water flows freely into extensive floodplains covered until April when the dikes are closed again and the remaining water is drained.

Fauna

There is a Special Protection Area (SPA) for birds.[1] These plains are habitats for birds such as the Black Stork, the Aquatic Warbler, and the Corn Crake. There are animals such as the European Otter and the European Beaver.

Flora

There are plants like the submediterranean Pubescent Oak.
