New exhibition space in the Mas del Director
The information centre at Sebes Nature Reserve has had a new visitor’s information area since last Christmas.
Thanks to an agreement which was signed by Flix Town Hall and Tarragona council, the existing panels (made fourteen years ago) have been completely renovated and a new information system with touch-screen interaction has been acquired at the Mas del Director.
The seven panels which were designed by staff at the Reserve, are arranged in the following way: one panel on historical events in this natural reserve, another on tourist infrastructures which can be visited in the municipality, four panels summarizing the most outstanding species and habitats at Sebes Nature Reserve and Flix Meander, and the last panel which describes the main projects to have taken place throughout the 26 year history of the Freixe Nature Group.
The panels dedicated to the most outstanding species which can be seen at the reserve, places strong emphasis on the birds. Thanks to the collaboration of numerous nature photographers who have visited us from all over the world, it has been possible to reproduce some spectacular photographs on a large scale of species such as the Eurasian bittern, kingfisher, European bee-eater, western marsh harrier, purple heron etc., among the more than 30 species which are on display. All of the photographs were taken in the area and show the ornithological richness which makes Sebes Reserve and Flix Meander a point of reference for ornithological fans and experts everywhere.
This visitor’s information space is complemented by a touch-screen system where you can view and interact with educational and audiovisual applications.
Some informational posters showing routes on the Reserve have also been renewed with Braille, as the effects of time had started to take their toll.
