TOUR DESCRIPTION
A tour in the Coast Botanical Garden of Porto Caleri will give you the chance to admire and study the multiple aspects through which nature expresses itself.
We offer four itineraries focused on different topics:
1) The Trees and the Wood
In this itinerary, you will discover the trees and their parts, the place where they grow within the wood and their importance to man.
2) The Inhabitants of the Wood
In this itinerary, you will study the animals that populate the environments of the botanical garden. At the beginning of the tour, we will collect small insects among leaves and under tree barks, then we will look for animal tracks on the dunes and on the beach. Once we have collected enough information, we will move to the special "open-air classroom", where we will describe and analyse the behaviour, role and importance of these animals in the ecological niche.
3) Life in Wetlands
In this itinerary, a comparison is made between freshwater and saltwater areas by observing and analysing their different plants and animals.
4) Flowers & Plants
In this itinerary, you will analyse the several plant species by collecting leaves, flowers and roots, and then identifying them with the aid of appropriate dichotomous keys. Moreover, you will study their adaptations to the various environments.
