Place: Regional Museum of l'Horta Sud (Torrent)
The exhibition, produced by the University of Valencia through the Vice-Principal for Territorial Projection and Participation's Support Unit, is composed of 25 exhibition panels produced by the teaching and research staff of the different departments of the University, as well as by the specialists of the Nature Reserve and other specialists affiliated to the wetland (Júcar Hydrographic Confederation, Valencian Department of Environment, etc.).
No doubt this constitutes a great multidisciplinary exhibition since the topics covered include the historical formation of the lake, the fauna, the pollution and quality of the waters, the (paleo)limnology and edaphology, the restoration of the dunes, the 'malladas' (depressions) or 'ullals' (springs), the main economic activities carried out in the area (fishing, ricefield, industry) or the hydraulic heritage landmarks (irrigation channels, steams, 'tancats') present in the Albufera environment.
The Vice-principal for Territorial Projection and Participation, Jorge Hermosilla, has shown a special interest in making this exhibition, pioneering in the history of L’Albufera, tour all the villages located in the surroundings of the Nature Reserve, due to the strong bonds (social, economic, cultural or environmental) that these villages hold with the Valencian wetland.
Hours: Tuesday to Friday, 10-13 and 15-20h; Saturday, 11-13:30 and 17-20h
