The lair of the squirrel

Guided nature excursion to Ciampedie to discover the forest and its creatures, with a special focus on squirrels

Programme: it is a daytime creature, it spends the night within the trees cavities and it is a skilful jumper. Who is it? Another clue: it feeds on nuts, nuts, buds, gems, acorns, mushrooms and fruit, but it also happen to complete its diet with small animals, eggs and insects. It stockpiles food conspicuously during the summer, storing it in well-hidden pantries to cope with the long winter months. Sometimes, however, it forgets about these reserves, thus collaborating in the dissemination of plants. Guess what? It's the squirrel, and it's Ladin name is "schieratola"!

An easy nature hike of about 2 hours, organized by the lift company "Catinaccio", to discover and admire the wood, its plants and the squirrel's natural habitat, following an easy path with 8 hand-painted explanatory and descriptive boards.

Meeting point: every Tuesday and Saturday at 10.15 a.m. by the top station of the cable car. 

Registration: not required. Price: free activity included in the Panorama Pass or in the lift ticket. Clothes and shoes suitable for mountain excursions are required. Strollers allowed. In case of bad weather, the activity will be cancelled.

Take part in the contest "Paint your chair". Draw what you have most liked during the excursion and hand in your work to the guide or at the cash desks of the lifts. The three most representative drawings will selected to adorn three chairs of the chair lift "Vajolet 1".
