Long Description:
The Kevie is a nature reserve that is located between Tongeren and Mal. The area is managed by Natuurpunt and measures approximately 35 ha. It is part of the Landscape Park of the Eastern Jeker, together with De Beemden, De Meersen and Het Hardel.

The Kevie is an area of moist meadows in the Jeker valley. It is a small-scale landscape of former hay meadows, marshes, stream-accompanying forests and thickets, pools, wooded banks and pollard willows. An area of 35 ha is grazed by Heck cattle after crossing to the Oeros.

The area has a loamy soil and has a rich plant growth. The mockingbird and blackbird can be called from the birds. The crested salamander, the small salamander and the alpine water salamander are found in the ponds. The area is European protected as part of Natura 2000 area 'Jeker valley and upper course of the Demerval valley' (habitat directive area BE2200041).
