The Park flora within the reach of everybody

Giving the visitor a “calling card”, a sample collection of the hundreds of vegetable species living in the Park: the idea to create a botanic garden in Val del Mis, upstream the lake and near the access to Cadini del Brenton, was born from this need. The Botanic Garden is also a useful instrument to carry out scientific and didactic activities dedicated to the rich Park flora (over 1,500 species) including many rare species, and is a reference point for expert botanists and mere enthusiasts.
Opened in July 2008 the garden allows us to observe high-altitude species without carrying out difficult and demanding hikes which are not suitable for all the visitors of the protected area, and it is divided into sectors representing the main environments of the Park: the rocks and the screes, the wetlands, the meadows and the pastures, the forest.
The structure has been planned according to the newest indications, as far as the accessibility for people with sight disabilities is concerned, by using Braille in the didactic panels and through the realization of a relief model of the whole garden.
Particular attention has been paid to the needs of disabled people: the garden is in fact completely accessible for people on wheelchair. The garden is not finished yet, also because we respect the times of nature: seeds or small plants are planted, therefore it will take some years before the garden becomes as wonderful as we wish it to be.
