The Piora valley microorganism educational path

The Piora valley is one of the most spectacular valleys in Ticino, that is famous for its rich biodiversity and for its numerous lakes. Since 200 years tourists and scientists have been visiting and studying this valley, taking advantage of this extraordinary contest.
In the heart of this ecosystem, there are organisms with a key role, they are unknown because they are invisible to the human eye: the name is “microorganisms”.

The educational path can be done in both directions. The length is about 4 km, it’s a circular path and the information point is located at the Centre for Alpine Biology (research lab). Along the path indicator bars inform where the microorganism are visible or which effects they can have on the environment.

On each bar there is a reference to a particular chapter of the book (available in italian, french and german).

Montagnepulite: This project was born to promote an effective management and sustainable use of mountain huts in Ticino, and in particular the litter management. The responsible management of litter in the mountains is a matter of common sense. We can all contribute:
