De Struinwaard is a man-made area along the southern bank of the Vecht. It is an area with ditches, swirls, trees and reed parts. There are also berths created for canoeists, rowers and boats. In the Struinwaard the rare plant Lange Ereprijs grows again. Also the Bandheidelibel, a rare dragonfly, has been spotted. By arranging the area in a more natural way, there will also be more flow for the water of the Overijsselse Vecht.
