Starting point: in the centre of Kapele, at the information board next to the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption
The trail starts in the centre of the village of Kapele, at the information board next to the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption. A marked cart track leads you over the Kapele vineyards and forested slopes to the Jovsi Floodplain. There are two information points with explanation boards in the forest and on the edge of the Jovsi Floodplain. The first information point presents the features of the forest, while the second one describes the features of the Jovsi flora and fauna. Since 2018, the ornithological observatory is no longer in use. You can observe birds, amphibians, and mammals with binoculars and telescopes. From the observatory, you can return to Kapele following the same route, or take a scenic cart track or the local road. The trail also adds variety to the learning process of primary and secondary school students. Before the fieldwork, students can visit the Kapele information room, a true multimedia classroom. There they can learn about the Jovsi Floodplain and Dobrava Forest by watching a film or looking at photos, and models. The best time to visit is early summer.
Points of interest: rich variety of plant species and communities, the only confirmed corncrake nesting area in the Pannonian Slovenia.
