Establishment of the new Kintterö nature conservation area (72 ha) was prepared for the City of Lahti in 2017. The formalization was in 2018. Nature conservation areas and their services were also improved and maintained. Maintenance work was carried out in almost all of the nature conservation areas. In addition, several biota and LUMO area surveys were carried out and preparations for the establishment of a new nature conservation area began.

Hollola has a total of 1,610 hectares of natural conservation areas. The number does not cover areas in ridge protection programs or Natura reserves, as these partially overlap with other nature conservation areas. Among the environmental action taken by Hollola in 2017, the reparation of the duckboards in the Soisalmensuo nature conservation area should be mentioned.
