A HALF DAY EXPERIENCE | KNOW OUR RESEARCHERS & EXPLORE BIODIVERSITY with a REAL SCIENTIST Enjoy our HIDDEN PLACE and taste the offered Montado Flavors
Come alone, in couples, family, or a small group (join one if you prefere, ask how by mail) and be part of a CITIZEN SCIENCE opportunity. Or just enjoy the journey and magnify your knowledge with the ones that know more about it. Return with a story to tell and impress your friends with your new or even improved knowledge
You´ll learn how to register your observations in an INTERNATIONAL DATA BASE and help SCIENCE to go further. Pay attention to Fauna and Flora around you and appreciate this ecological high value Ecosystem and its very own beauty
BioDiversity4All, our partner, since 2018 is the portuguese platform of the worldwide iNaturalist network - American project by National Geographic and the California Academy of Sciences, which received data for the entire world
Depending on the group's interest guided tours may focus on a particular taxonomic group (for example: birds, flora) or be more generalists, covering a wider range of taxonomic groups and the services of this ecosystem so important for our country
This database follows the concept of Web 2.0 and includes all citizens like scientists, school audiences, managers or tourists, being able to share their observations
Launched in the International Year of Biodiversity, 2010, it is founded on the belief that society will be more concerned with nature conservation if they get involved with science and know better the life surrounding us
Through this project, users have already identified new species for Portugal and found species in places where we were unaware of their presence.
