Vooremaa Landscape Reserve was founded in 1964. According to the protection rules, the main aim of the reserve is to protect, research and introduce the large drumlins, cultural landscapes and the diversity of its nature. The area of the landscape reserve is divided into three conservation zones with a stricter protection procedure that have been left to the mercy of natural processes and without any economic activity. There is also one limited management zone with a more lenient protection procedure.
Restrictions to activities are based on the Nature Conservation Act and the protection rules of the Vooremaa Landscape Reserve that can be found in Riigi Teataja. The basis of planning work and activities in the reserve is the applied action plan – the management plan of the Vooremaa Landscape Reserve. The valid management plan has been compiled for the years 2012–2021 and can be found on the website of the Environmental Board.
