Center Nature

A place of meeting, learning and recreation

This centre promotes the landscape, natural resources and cultural heritage of Vallemaggia, particularly in the lower reaches of the valley. The Centre is a place of meeting, learning and recreation for schools, the local population and visitors from further afield. The Centre organizes various activities aimed at a broad audience including young people, families, adults and disabled people.

Centro Natura Vallemaggia sees itself as an ideal departure point for exploring various aspects of nature and culture in Vallemaggia, for example by promoting educational nature walks with or without a guide.

The Centre seeks to encourage a form of development that considers man, environment and economy; to make good use of Vallemaggia’s natural resources and cultural heritage; to promote respect for the environment; to become an educational reference point for schools; and to promote nature research and economic activities.
