Environmental education centre
Dedalus is the Cerwood labyrinth, the atelier of nature of the Appennine, the centre of environmental education to sensitise visitors about biodiversity, cultural heritage and preservation of nature.This project is promoted by the Tuscan-Emilian Appennine National Park and it is a place of experimentation where to understand and discover nature in its different shapes through exploration, observation, games and activities able to raise wonder, curiosity and to stimulate creativity and detailed studies.
It is an experimental place of inspiration and contamination where the scientific approach will guide toward the awareness of the value of nature.
Dedalus is located in Cervarezza Terme, in the Appennine of Reggio Emilia, inside the Tuscan-Emilian Appennine National Park. The spaces and educational activities of the Atelier Dedalus are managed by our operative staff – in accordance with the Tuscan-Emilian Appennine National Park – environmental entertainers, environmental hiking guides and experts in the environmental education sector.
At Dedalus you can find four different spaces and educasional courses where you can observe nature in four different ways:
- the bramble bush;
- the beechwood;
- the wolf den;
- the tree trunks maze.
You can make it through the bramble bush as only a wild boar knows how, or crawl like a whip snake in the tree trunks maze, identify yourself with a squirrel or with a bird watching the wood from the top of a tree and in the end enter in the wolf den to get to know him better.
This is only the beginning of Dedalus, the environmental education centre where to learn about the Park’s biodiversity through plants, animals, fungi and enviroments. Come to discover all the activities!
