Exploring Maltese environment

Besides its palaeontological and archaeological importance, the prehistoric site of Għar Dalam in Birżebbuġa is also a Natura 2000 protected area.

Heritage Malta is inviting the public to visit this site and participate in activities which will focus on various aspects of the Maltese environment. Tomorrow’s full-day event will also see the involvement of various environmental NGOs and government entities.

Activities start at 9am with a botanical tour in the Wied Dalam area led by Nature Trust. The tour will take place again at 11am, 2 and 4pm. At 9:30am, the Environment and Resources Authority will deliver a talk about national species, which talk will be repeated at 10.30 and 11.30am.

Throughout the day, the Grow 10 Trees Project will be giving demonstrations about tree propagation and at 10am and 3.30pm they will be planting trees on site.

Various stands will provide further opportunity to explore different aspects of our local environment including cave fauna, valley management, the natural environment; craft sessions and treasure hunts and honey tasting.

Participants may choose to take part in environment-related activities, walk around the grounds, and visit Għar Dalam cave.

Visitors will be granted a reduced fee entrance of €2. However, those arriving to Għar Dalam by bicycle will enter for free to encourage environment friendly transport.
