Parco Fluviale del Trebbia
Water and Biodiversity... treasures to discover and protect!
The Trebbia River Regional Park protects about thirty kilometers of the water course of the same name, from Rivergaro to the confluence with the Po river, by the western borders of Piacenza's urban area, the upstream section of the confluence, about five kilometers far from the Po river's bank near Piacenza. The landscape is mainly occupied by the Trebbia's exposed riverbed, which is remarkably significant for the migratory avifauna, and by the river terraces where grasslands and shrublands alternate with traditional agricultural cultivations and areas still dedicated to mining activities. Within the Park there are two Sites of Community Importance and Special Protection Areas (SCI-SPA) of the Natura 2000 Network (IT4010016 "Basso Trebbia", IT4010018 "Fiume Po da Rio Boriacco a Bosco Ospizio"), and one regional area (ID 2029 Croara).
Since 2012 it has been managed by the Managing Authority for the Parks and the Biodiversity - Western Emilia.
