Explore and protect nature

This year, the Nature Parks of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-South Tyrol are once again offering Junior Ranger training activities; participants will become explorers and connoisseurs of the fauna and flora of the parks and will tune in to the topic of protecting its natural heritage, learning to find their way in the mountains and enjoying an adventure in the company of their peers.

Puez-Geisler, Tre Cime, Schlern-Rosengarten

The setting for this unique experience will be three Natural Parks that are home to three systems recognised by UNESCO as part of the unique Dolomites World Heritage Site. All the modules include a few single days of hiking and training, and a period of several days, with an overnight stay immersed in the Natural Park environment during the evening and early morning hours. The German-language Junior Ranger training will take place in the Puez-Geisler Natural Park (System 6) and the Tre Cime Park (part of Northern Dolomites System 5). The Schlern-Rosengarten Natural Park (System 7) will host the Italian-language training. The initiative is also a product of the collaboration between the AVS (South Tyrol Alpine Club) and the CAI (Italian Alpine Club).
