ADOPT A LIFE medCLIFFS TRANSECT - Calella de Palafrugell 19th November 2022
Saturday, 19 November 2022 · 11:00h - 13:00h (Europe/Madrid)
If you are interested in plants and coastal habitats, come and find out how you can become part of the LIFE medCLIFFS Volunteers Network!
LIFE medCLIFFS is a nature conservation project funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union and aims to improve the management of invasive alien plants in the habitat of community interest HCI 1240 - Mediterranean sea cliffs with endemic flora, present on the Costa Brava and Cap de Creus areas (NE Spain).
LIFE medCLIFFS has a Volunteer Network for the monitoring and surveillance of invasive alien flora affecting Mediterranean sea cliffs. Volunteers collect ecological and biological data on invasive and potentially invasive plants, which are used to model and predict the risk of invasion in priority areas, being essential to define the best strategy for action against each invasive alien plant.
We invite you to take part in a guided botanical route along two under study transects in Calella de Palafrugell. Led by botanical experts, you will be able to observe and learn to recognise alien plant species, many of which have escaped from gardens. Some of them are invasive and have or may have an impact on both biodiversity and the conservation of the cliffs of the Costa Brava with endemic flora.You will also be informed about how you can become part of the LIFE medCLIFFS Volunteer Network, so, if you want, you can register and contribute to the conservation of the Mediterranean sea cliffs.
IMPORTANT! The activity is addressed to young people (minimum 16 years old) and adults. It will take place on rocky terrain and in full sun, so we recommend that you wear comfortable shoes with non-slip soles, light clothing with long sleeves, a cap, sun cream for the parts of the body exposed to the sun and enough water for the whole route. If you want, you can bring a small breakfast or snack.
