Slow Spring 2015

From March 21 to June 21 the Po Delta Park will ease into the new spring season with a slow rhythm. Three months full of events to experience nature in all its forms, discovering landscapes, smells, sounds and colors.


From Goro to Mesola, from Cervia to Ravenna passing through the Marshes of Comacchio or the oases further south, nature enthusiasts can experience and get to know this vast nature reserve,  part of the Unesco Heritage of Humanity, which extends for more than 53,000 hectares from Ferrara to Ravenna including internationally important wetland areas with 450 species of vertebrates, of which 320 species are birds, and more than 970 botanical species.


The program of events is very full with initiatives for both children and adults; hiking, bike rides and boat rides, horseback riding, learning labs, guided tours, sporting events and much, much more. Birdwatching enthusiasts can observe and photograph the many species present here, and gluttons will have the chance to taste typical local products.  There are many workshops designed for children and older kids, who can get in touch with nature and learn about the fauna of the Delta in a fun and educational way.



Along with the main attractions there will also be some special events with specific themes.
