A Weekend dedicated to bird observation and nature acitivities, with activities for all audiences.
On Friday the 17th, the activities are intended for students of pre-school establishments in the municipality of Campo Maior, with playful activities and the placement of Nest Boxes for birds of the campomairauna.
On Saturday, and similarly to the first edition, will take place during the morning the Steppary Bird Watching, starting at 8:30 am on January 18, 2020, at the Xévora Environmental Center. Later, at 1pm, there will be a social lunch, in Degolados, for the participants.
In the afternoon of the same day, we will look at the sky again, this time in search of the cranes, in an activity to happen from 15h00, in Albufeira do Caia. At 6pm, at the Governor’s House in Ouguela, there will be a conference on “Monitoring and Conservation of Birds in Agriculture – the tourist potential of Birdwatching”.
On the 19th, Sunday, we return to the site to walk. From 8:30 a.m., participants will walk the entire PR2 – Crane Route (with a few more kilometres, of course), which will end at the Xévora Environmental Centre, where a shared lunch awaits them. In the afternoon, we will make the last bird’s eye view of this 2nd edition, near the Caia’s Lagoon.
