Also this year Oasi Zegna, a nature park in the
Biella Alps in Piemonte, joined Grandi Giardini Italiani, a network of Italy’s
most beautiful gardens founded in 1997 by Judith Wade. (For further info: www.grandigiardini.it).
One result of this collaboration is the "Botanical Treasure hunt" scheduled for Easter Monday, Monday 22
April. The event’s meeting point, on Easter Monday, is Brughiera. It will be a
day dedicated entirely to outdoor fun in which kids from 6 to 11 will follow a
recreational course (involving images, quizzes and riddles) and come into
contact with trees in the woods around Santuario Nostra Signora della Brughiera
(15th and 17th cent.) in Oasi Zegna. The kids will be divided into teams and
will have to do some extremely careful and detailed observation of nature, and
vegetation in particular, if they want to win. The participants will have the
adventurous task of picking plants to prepare a personal herbarium that they
can keep as a souvenir of the day.
Times: meet up at 10:30 at the Albergo
Ristorante “Il Castagneto”. The treasure hunt will end by 13:00. The
activities, designed for kids from 6 to 11, will take place in the surrounding
woods and meadows, so we recommend comfortable clothes, hiking boots, sun hat
and water. In the event of rain, there will be a biodiversity workshop for kids
in the Albergo Ristorante Castagneto.
