Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.

The upper catchment area of the river Miño (Lugo) holds no less than 15 habitats of Community interest (four of them priority). Typical habitats include riverine forests of common alder (Alnus glutinosa) and ash (Fraxinus excelsior), and wooded peat bogs (a very rare habitat in the Iberian Peninsula). The main actions of the project were to rely on the elaboration of a management plan for the Natura 2000 site that includes the restoration of streams and canals, recovery of natural vegetation, elimination of exotic species and installation of vegetation filters for sewage treatment. Also, the project included a monitoring Natura 2000 site plan for species and habitats, and the launch of a public awareness campaign (including a nature trail that highlights the conservation and importance status of the area). This project counts with the support of local, regional, national and European institutions. The financing comes from the LIFE initiative and the Consejería of Environment, Galicia.
