Parco Oglio Nord: an ecological treasure to preserve
The Parco Oglio Nord extends along the river of the same name, from the enchanting Lake Iseo to the River Mella, its tributary. Despite the transformations linked to land reclamation and intensive agriculture, the area still preserves environments of inestimable ecological value. It is home to eight Natura 2000 sites, including willow groves and wetlands vital to the rich fauna that populates it.
Bird-watchers will find their paradise here, with species such as the cormorant, grey heron, mallard, crane and night heron. But that’s not all: the park is also a paradise for cycling enthusiasts, thanks to the popular Oglio River Cycle Route, which links cycle paths to destinations all over Europe.
A concrete commitment to biodiversity
In recent years, the need for action to protect the Park’s biodiversity and health has emerged. In the areas of intervention at the Bosco della Marisca Nature Reserve, in the municipalities of Genivolta and Villachiara, critical issues have emerged: intense atmospheric events have caused considerable damage to the forest cover, in addition to the presence of non-native and pest species, which have altered the natural balance.
Therefore, a forest improvement program is planned that promotes native species by planting as many as 10,000 new trees to expand and strengthen the existing forest. And you can be part of this important step forward.
A project supported by the whole community
This project is co-funded by the Lombardy Region’s “Biodiversity and Climate” (BioClima) call for proposals and supported by Fondazione Cariplo. Bioclima is an initiative created in the framework of the Lombardy Plan and the LIFE GESTIRE 2020 project that aims to create public-private financing models to catalyze investments in biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation projects in Lombardy’s forests and protected areas.
