“Thousands of tired, nerve-wrecked, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity” John Muir – one of the early advocates for the preservation of wilderness – wrote back in 1901.
If you too are looking for unforgettable moments in harmony with nature, if you want to feel “at home” again, nothing is better than watching the sunset on the Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Italian Alps. Indeed, here you will find a unique nature and landscape, home of the ancient Ladin people that have always respected and protected this both strong and fragile mountain ecosystem.
Strong because it’s impossible not to feel small when facing the majestic mountains that safeguard the valleys.
Fragile because the effects of the changing climate are already affecting the mountains. Our mountains, in fact, must face not only the increasing temperatures and the consequent melting of the glaciers but also the increasingly frequent and severe extreme meteorological events such as Storm Vaia in October 2018, that opened a deep wound in the heart of Alta Badia, destroying century-old forests.
But today, you can be part of its rebirth, taking care of the forests of Corvara, exactly as the mountains have always done with us: support the rebirth of its forests and contribute to mitigating the effects of the climate crisis!
This year the first planting of the season in Alta Badia will take place on the occasion of one of the two sporting events that will take place in Alta Badia: the Dolomites Bike Day and the Sellaronda Bike Day. It will be an unmissable opportunity to combine sport, bike, nature and make a concrete gesture for the forests of Alta Badia.
This is a FSC®certified area: FSC forest management certification confirms that the forest is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability.
