On Friday the 22nd -at 2:00 p.m.- Walter Muiño will be in charge of this activity that proposes to rescue the caldenal.

The caldenal is a forest whose most important representative and the one that gives the landscape its appearance is the caldén, but in addition to this species, many other plants coexist in this forest that also give it a particular identity.

As a natural heritage of all the Pampas, it is necessary that the inhabitants of the Province know its aspects and ecosystem.
