The University of Valencia and its natural environments : Parque Natural de la Albufera
Schedule: From 14 september 2012 to 28 september 2012. Monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday and saturday at 10:00 to 22:00.
Place: Sala de Exposiciones de la Casa de la Cultura.
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 researching staff of the different departments of the University, as well as by the technicians of the Natural Park and other specialists affiliated to the wetland (Confederación Hidrográfica del Júcar, Conselleria de Medio Ambiente, etc.).
No doubt this constitutes a great multidisciplinary exhibition since the topics covered include the historical formation of the lake, the fauna, the contamination and quality of the waters, the (paleo)limnology and edafology, the restoration of the dunes, the 'malladas' or 'ullals', the main economic activities carried out in the area (fishing, ricefield, industry) or the hydraulic heritage landmarks (irrigation channels, 'vapores', 'tancats') present in the Albufera environment.
The Vice-principal for Participation and Territorial Projection, Jorge Hermosilla, has shown a special interest in making this exhibition, pioneering in the history of La Abufera, tour all the villages located in the surroundings of the Natural Park, due to the strong bonds (social, economic, cultural or environmental) that these villages hold with the Valencian wetland.
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 10:00-14:00 and 16:00-22:00. Saturday 10:00-14:00.
Opening 14 september, 19:00 h
Vice-principal for Territorial Projection and Participation in collaboration with the City Council of Catarroja.
