Have you stopped to think about how ecosystems work and what they provide us every day?
We’ll be taking a walk from LU.CA to its two neighboring gardens, to discover their biodiversity, that is the variety of living beings inhabiting each one of them without any human intervention.
You’ll have the opportunity to explore your surroundings by identifying and registering new species on our map and sharing your discovery with other people.
