The Montgó Natural Park is an ecosystem of great biological value that hosts a great natural diversity that includes different endemic species. Therefore, it is not surprising that the park management has a special interest in publicising its important ecological heritage and promoting its preservation and care through different educational activities.

The event scheduled for Sunday 27th November is perhaps one of the most different of all, for it involves the cleaning of the nest boxes for forest birds that are located in the pine forests in this important natural area, an educational opportunity for all the family.

The nest boxes are small wooden cubicles specially created and carefully placed to facilitate the protection and reproduction of insectivorous birds, which are so important in maintaining the natural balance of the ecosystem. Their maintenance is essential to guarantee the laying of eggs and preserve the birds that nest in them.

The activity will begin at 9.00am at the Montgó Natural Park Visistor’s Centre located in Camí de Sant Joan in Dénia. From there, participants will travel in their own vehicles to the Coll de Pous area. The event will last about three hours, the cost is free and it is recommended to wear comfortable clothes and shoes as well as water and sun protection.
