The exhibition, produced by the University of Valencia through the The Office of the Vice-Principal for Territorial Projection and Participation's Support Unit. It 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 wetlands (Confederación Hidrográfica del Júcar, Conselleria de Medio Ambiente, etc.).
No doubt this constitutes a great multidisciplinary exhibition since the areas of study span from the lake's historical formation the fauna and vegetation, the contamination and the quality of the waters, the(paleo)limnology, soil science, the restoration of the dunes, 'mallades' or 'ullals', the main economic activities carried out in the area (fishing, ricefield, industry) or the landmarks of the hydraulic heritage (irrigation ditches, steamers, 'tancats') present in the Albufera's environment.
The Office of the Vice-Principal for Territorial Projection and Participation, Jorge Hermosilla, has shown a special interest in making this exhibition, pioneering in the history of La Albufera, tour all the towns connected to the Natural Park, due to the strong bonds (social, económic, cultural or environmental) that these towns hold with the Valencian wetlands.
The Exhibition's opening will be on March 21, 2012 at 19:00
The Office of the Vice-Principal for Territorial Projection and Participation in collaboration with the City Council of Massanassa.
