Rytro is part of Beskid Sadecki. Its plant and animal life are typical of the flora and fauna found in the region.
Even on a short walk along the Greater or Lesser Roztoka Valley. One can find interesting or rare species of local flora and fauna. Early in the morning you can observe deer or hares grazing in the fields. Herds of skittish wild boars can be found in the autumn or winter in the upper parts of the valley. A nature reserve, "Baniska", was founded in 1924 at the source of the Roztoczanka Stream. Beech, sycamore, Fir and spruce trees are protected there. In 1968, a very unique, multi-fruit hawthorn was discovered in Zyczynow.
Among the wildlife you can encounter here is the lynx which is protected.
In the deeper parts of the unpolluted Roztoka Stream trout can be seen.
Roztoka Valley is perhaps the last large valley in Beskid Sadecki which remains untouched and un-drained. Thanks to this, wetlands and small marshes have survived. Now they are home to more than a dozen species of amphibians (newts, salamanders and frogs). In the spring one can come across five varieties of orchids. Reptiles (sand lizard, common lizard, grass snake and the adder) inhibit the dry and slope bordering the meadow.
Since so many unique species of amphibians and reptiles can be found in the Rytro area, community authorities in 1995 began to cooperate with "Greenworks - Association for the Active Protection of Animals". In 1996, the first Polish local ecological park was established thanks to this cooperation.
In autumn and winter a strong wind blows along Poprad Valley - up to 20 m/s. Clean air and an unpolluted environment make this area bee-friendly. The more than 250 bee hives in this area produce high quality products such as different varieties of honey, pollen and propolis.
