To celebrate Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22, the Ciência Viva da Floresta Center inaugurated the traveling exhibition of rocks and minerals in northern Portugal, created in 2016 by the Northern Region partners of Roteiro das Minas and Points of Mining and Geological Interests in Portugal, At the initiative of the municipality of Villa Boca de Aguirre.
Geoscientist Joanna Rodrigues, of Geopark Naturtejo, took a guided tour of the exhibition and developed the “Meet the World” activity in which the fourth chapter of EB São Nuno de Santa Maria, of Cernache do Bonjardim, participated in the Escola Ciência Alive.
Free entry until August 31
The municipality of Proença-a-Nova reports that this exhibition, which shows little about the geographical diversity, geological history and mining history of the north of the country, has free admission and can be visited until August 31.
The partnership with CCV da Floresta also stems from the fact that Proença-a-Nova has important geographical monuments, such as Portas de Almourão, and a strong mining tradition going back to exploring gold, on the banks of the Ocreza River in Roman times.
As for Earth Day, its celebration began on April 22, 1970 in the United States with the organization of an environmental forum by US Senator Gaylord Nelson, in which millions of participants participated. Today this day is called Planet Earth Day or Mother Earth Day, and the theme of this year is Restoring Earth.
