Family excursions on the Paganella

A mobile laboratory on the Paganella, with final destination at a specially prepared area near the Malghet di Zambana, where the family groups taking part can plant their own tree varieties and sign a large wooden commemorative panel.

During the outing the leaders will share their experience in naturalist and forest research, forest stories, the terrible Vaia storm, climate change, sustainability, the importance of plant life, the ability of plants to interact as a community, and the forest as a living place.

Along the way we will use delicate tweezers to collect small seeds of European spruce and silver fir, which are then planted in small recyclable pots by all the children taking part. The pots, soil, and the screen printed Paganella Rifugi boxes become souvenirs for the participants to take back home.

There is the option of a special price lunch at the Meriz and Dosson huts at the end of the experience.

From the expert's mouth

“The simple gesture of planting trees is one of the most symbolic and optimistic acts imaginable. It means putting down roots, knowing how to wait, living in the rhythm of nature and contributing to the future of the Earth.” - Fabrizio Tonidandel
