Garzaia of Codigoro

On the outskirts of Codigoro, in the shadow of the abandoned Sugar Plant and near the Water Reclamation Consortium's Hydrotreatment Plant, stands the Garzaia, or City of Herons. This is an area of about 8 hectares, which became, after the disuse of the sugar mill, a veritable grove of Robins, Poplars, Sambuca and Prunus and where various species of Ardeidae have settled undisturbed: Little Egrets, Night Herons, Grey Herons and Great White Egrets.

The presence of the Sambuchi and four settling tanks of the former sugar mill provide ideal habitat for the birds' settlement and survival. Thanks to a sighting turret and a web-cam, it is possible to study, observe and monitor the animals without disturbing them.

Inside the Education Room, visitors can follow, projected on a big screen, all the moments of the birds' lives, from courtship to nesting, in an environmentally sustainable way and regardless of the period in which they visit the Garzaia.

Guided tours by appointment (tel. 333 3615278 and 339 4682583).
