Naturalistic excursion in the WWF Oasis La Malcontenta e il Lupo

Immerse yourself in the forest, arrive at the stream, in a conservation area normally with restricted access.





The excursion is exclusive because it is limited in number, and because it will take place in a conservation area not normally open to the public.We are talking about a group of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 people.


ENVIRONMENT

The WWF Oasis is a protected area that includes several habitats of naturalistic value. It is home to a wide variety of environments rich in biodiversity: typical wetland environments, naturally evolving forests, climatic inversion phenomena, and ecosystems that are home to flora and fauna of considerable interest, including an abundance of wild orchids.

CONSERVATION

Areas that are not normally open to the public play a role of primary importance, as they protect areas of great naturalistic value and are useful for scientific research. This is why forests are naturally evolving, because nature is studied as it naturally evolves, lives, because only under these conditions we can truly understand how it behaves and make important discoveries that involve our own life and health. Old trees and forests, floristic entities that are rare or at the limit of their distribution range, well-preserved ecosystems protected at European level are just some of the reasons why an environment is 'conserved'. It is also conserved in order to enrich neighbouring environments, to rebalance other ecosystems, so that, in the end, everyone can enjoy it, and every form of life can benefit from the other in complete respect. We are in a precious territory rich in biodiversity.

PHILOSOPHY

At the WWF Oasis La Malcontenta e il Lupo we immerse ourselves in nature with complete respect for the environment and the wildlife that inhabits it. The insects we may encounter are of value to the functioning of the ecosystem. The animals are not disturbed. Knowing that they are there, just a stone's throw away, even if we do not see them, makes us more aware and richer.Pets cannot be brought along for scientific reasons and so as not to create conflict with the wildlife, which is very sensitive to any kind of solicitation from 'newcomers' to its territory.

Book your excursion to the WWF Oasis and bring your camera and binoculars if you wish.

PARTICIPATE

The fee you pay also serves to cover the running costs of the WWF Oasis and the conservation projects. What you spend on enrolment will therefore also serve in part to support the WWF Oasis and its scientific research and dissemination activities.

Support environmental protection, support biodiversity, support WWF!

SUPPORT THE OASES

Oases protect wildlife, botanical species, preserve nature. The environment is a resource for all, it improves our quality of life. Studying it creates new possibilities in the field of scientific, medical and technological discoveries. By protecting the environment we protect ourselves. We promote a world in which human beings live in harmony with nature.

HOW TO GET THERE

For those coming from the North or South, take the Ponterio exit of the E-45 state road and then continue towards Orvieto (SS448), and turn following the signs for Porchiano - Asproli.

If your navigator tries to make you turn onto gravel or dirt roads, do not take them. Always follow only the main tarmac road and the road signs indicating Porchiano and Asproli.

La Malcontenta e il Lupo is located just after the church in the village of Asproli. As soon as you pass the church, the road begins to descend. Drive down it for 125 metres and you will see the sign for La Malcontenta e il Lupo on the left. You have arrived.
Contact us if you have any doubts or for directions.
