Parco Oglio Nord

Italy
Villachiara (BS)

The condition this Park has been compromised by severe weather events and the entry of alien and pest species, which have altered its natural form. Therefore, we will carry out forest improvement works, promoting native species through the planting of 10,000 new trees.

Parco Oglio Nord runs along the homonymous river, from Lake Iseo to the Mella River, its affluent. Although the area is altered by land reclamation and intensive agriculture, we can still find natural environments of great ecological value, including as many as eight Natura 2000 sites, which include willow groves and wetlands, vital to the animals that inhabit it. In fact, the park is popular with bird-watchers. It is home many riverine birds, such as the cormorant, grey heron, mallard, crane, and night heron. Aso sportspeople can find their place here, biking along the Oglio River Cycle Route, popular throughout Europe, connecting to cycle routes to all destinations. This Park is a true green jewel for the Lombardy area, so it should be preserved and kept in excellent condition. In recent years, we have acknowledged the need for intervention to protect the biodiversity and health status of the park.

In the intervention areas located in the Bosco della Marisca Nature Reserve, in the municipalities of Genivolta (CR) and Villachiara (BS), two dynamics have been observed: severe weather events have damaged a large part of the forest cover, to which is added the entry of allochthonous and pest species, which has altered its natural form. Therefore, we plan forest improvement interventions, promoting native species: we will plant 10,000 new trees to expand and replenish the existing forest, also with your help.

 

This project is co-funded by the Call for Proposals “Biodiversity and Climate” (BioClima) implemented by Regione Lombardia and supported by Fondazione Cariplo. Bioclima, created under the LIFE MANAGEMENT 2020 project, aims to create public-private financing models to catalyze investment in biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation projects in Lombardy’s forests and protected areas.

Next tree plantings are scheduled for 2023.
