Conservation activities in schools will be complemented with field actions such as species identification, seed collection, planting and manual removal of invasive weeds, among others  and all appropriate for each age level.

These are mainly aimed at families (children, parents and grandparents) and involve educational and pratical activities aimed also for leisure activities (weekends, holidays and school holydays).
