"Adopt a Path"

1 GEN '15

The paths are a key element of Ecomuseo Argentario because thanks to them we can explore, go through and live the area.

During the 2015-2016 school year, Ecomuseo Argentario included the project called “Adotta un sentiero” (adopt a path) in its educational activities. This project was launched in collaboration with the Association of Alpinists of Trento SAT and its section based in Civezzano with the purpose of showing the students the paths in our area and teaching them the importance of looking after them and keeping them clean and safe.

Civezzano’s primary school participated in the project with all its classes, from first to fifth grade.

A mountain leader gave some classes in school about the road signs, some basic orienteering and the correct behaviour during an excursion. In the next few days there was a field trip during which the students left the school on foot. Each class got to a different path where, thanks to the SAT experts, the pupils could help with the maintenance work. During the walk the students could observe the plants and animal of the area thanks to the presence of the mountain leader and thus discover the pleasure of exploring.

The project ended on the last day of school when all the students took a walk on the paths that they had followed during the school year. Each class received a “certificate of adoption”.

Hoping that in the future other schools will participate in the project, the Ecomuseo thanks all the participants for the wonderful experience!
