The Park and the school

Environmental Education Proposals - School Year 2022/2023

In the Woods, everything still suggests the presence of the Duchess Maria Luigia while walking in the garden of her residence, the Casino dei Boschi Villa. What atmosphere! Tree-lined avenues, large trees and lakes surrounded by greenery: here you could experience silence and enchantement, even if the city is very close. The Park is the ideal place for schools and teachers who are willing to discover all about the wood and its inhabitants, about special "guests" such as wolves and other mammals and about "strange" trees coming from very far.

But the Park offers much more: it is the laboratory where you could assess the effects of climate change and where you could understand that soil is life and must be treated with respect, that some near natural landscapes need our care and that history and culture have shaped (not without contradictions) a unique landscape!
