On a beautiful winter’s morning on the 4th December ten ADAPT members visited the Salinas regional park information Centre and area to enjoy an activity organised by the association LIFE Salinas.
The day started with a talk about the history of the Salinas, from pre-historic times to the present day. Our members learnt about the biodiversity of the park, the history of salt production, the wonderful properties of salt, how the area is affected by climate change and about the important work of LIFE Salinas.
This was followed by a walking tour to understand first-hand the natural richness and beauty of the area, including the identification of birds, the importance of the pine woods and the benefits of the Posidonia oceánica plant.
Our member, Maureen Tinsley later wrote to us: “Thank you so much for organising this tour. I found it completely fascinating and I shall certainly look at the area with renewed vision”.
