The half-hectare wetland site Kolo is among what is known as a "private reserve", managed and overseen by the local ČSOP chapter Pantoflíček, which has gone so well that the wetland has improved tremendously, prompting the management of the Bílé Karpaty Protected Landscape Area to establish yet another small-size sanctuary bordering on the Kasivec River Valley.

After all, the number of Early Marsh Orchids has increased sixfold since 2007 (from 500 to 3,000 individual plants); from among the higher plants, we may mention, for example, the endangered Centaurea stenolepsis and the critically endangered Shuttleworth's Cattail, to name but a few. A number of plants belonging to the marshland vegetation attracts butterflies, among them the Scarce Swallowtail.

As part of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, an information panel was installed in 2012 to give visitors additional information about the site, and rustic seating was added to the restored well. The meadow was staked out with wooden posts, and a hatchery for snakes and lizards was built.

The site itself is not suitable for baby carriages or bicycles. However, a cycle trail runs nearby, and a refreshment stall operates near the fountain.
