Discover Terres de l’Ebre by collaborating with Picampall!
Picampall, the Terres de l'Ebre Ornithological Association was created in order to conserve, study and promote the rich birdlife in this area. It comprises a group of people with one common denominator, they appreciate the earth. They are most definitely conservationists, with a scientific nature for research. Their activities propose models for using the region which are compatible with the conservation of biological diversity as well as identifying and preventing negative impacts on those ecosystems where nature reserves and human activity often share the same space.
If you would like to take part in and enjoy any of their activities, here we make some suggestions to help you get to know the ornithological richness and nature in Terres de l’Ebre at first hand. Join the Uneix-TE campaign for environmental sensitization with volunteers and nature lovers of the Terres de l’Ebre!

Aim: Sensitization of volunteering participants and the general public to the importance of preserving environmental values along the coast.
The methodology of this survey is to divide the coast into sections, each section is to be divided into units measuring 500m which will be sampled and details on the state of the coast collected in a questionnaire. The sampling will be done by local volunteering groups from schools or non-profit making organizations.
More than ten thousand volunteers in Europe carry out this annual coastal surveillance survey. The area covered is around 10,000 kilometres of coastline form the Norwegian fjords to the Greek islands and the coast of the Black Sea.

Aim: Become familiar with the possibility of using this plant as a means of reducing erosion, supporting canal banks, landscape restoration and as a way to treat water (through its ability to absorb heavy metals through the roots). Participants can learn how to sow plant seeds.
All activities are free.
