On the northeast banks of Lake Bilancino, near the town of Galliano in Barberino di Mugello, you can find the WWF Gabbianello Oasis. The Oasis is a natural habitat created for the preservation of humid habitats, which are the ones most at risk of extinction all over Italy and Europe.
During migration, numerous interesting species of birds – the white stork, crane, wild goose, blackwinged stilt, bittern, flamingo, and the rare osprey - make this area their home.
The Oasis holds a Meeting Hall with all the necessary teaching tools. It is an ideal encounter point for adult courses, and student laboratories. A nature bookshop is also present on the premises (butterflies garden, educational pond, Medici fruits collection). Bike rental.
Activities: guided visits, nature walks and by mountain bike around the oasis; school trips, laboratories, adult courses; volunteer activities.
The oasis is open on Saturday and Sunday; it is closed in July and August.
Oasis temporarily closed.
