Environmental Center of priolo got visitors!

On Thursday, 10th of March, The Environmental Centre of Priolo spent the day in the company of the youngest; this time with a group of 6th grade of Primary and Secondary School of Vila Franca do Campo.

The students visited the Environmental Center of Priolo where they learned more about the Laurel forest and the endemic plants of the Azores, the Priolo and other birds as emblematic, and the direction of the various actions undertaken by the current LIFE project Sustainable Laurel, previous LIFE Priolo.

The garden of endemic species is always a beautiful and interesting place to go, and is the site where the activity 'Discovering the Laurel Forest' takes place. Here the students are led to identify the plants that surround them.

From here we went through the Tronqueira road to the Viewpoint, and passed through the areas of Laurel recovery intervened by the project.

The plant nursery in Povoação is a must visit site for our visitors, as the seedlings that grow here later will repopulate areas of replanting, and where students can to learn the process 'From seed to plant'.

Thanks for your company this weekend, we hope you visit us more often and that you participate in future activities!
