Our Environmental education and heritage interpretation team is staffed by biologists, environmental educators and mountain guides. All of them have in common a didactic profile. In all our activities we give priority to biodiversity conservation and we try to send out a message of value and respect.
We organize nature workshops and school visits for all ages. We do it not only in Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park but also in Posets-Maladeta natural Park and surroundings. We always make our best to adapt our activities to users’ needs.
