The Arboreto of Mondaino is also an Environmental Education Centre born with the financial support of the Assessorato all’Ambiente e Poliche per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile (Department of Environment and Sustainable Development) of the Province of Rimini. It belongs to the provincial INFEA network, which has the aim of realizing an organic system of environmental education and information.
The Arboreto intends to be a place dedicated to educational and recreational activities for schools, families and for adults as well. Through our guided tours and workshops we mainly seek to highlight the relation between creativity, art, play and nature.
At the same time the Arboreto acts as a tool for the promotion of a culture of sustainability and for the enhancement of the local heritage. Its evocative natural context facilitates interdisciplinary and “sensory” approaches and working methods.
Next to the activities addressed to the educational institutes, the Arboreto has developed an agenda about the historical and morphological research on the area along which it expends. Since its foundation, a team of researches has tracked its origins; a prerequisite for a targeted action aimed at the conservation through interventions of requalification. An investigation led to the drawing of an inventory of the main arboreal species that are found here and can be seen in the display cases in the multimedia room of the Arboreto.
New project for the park – scarecrow and natural sculptures.
