LIFE ALNUS workshop inside the Osona’s Naturalistic Days

2nd of April 2022

With the beginning of the C3. Restoration of rivers geomorphological strongly modified, a technical field-visit in Torelló and Masies de Voltregà has been promoted to keep the awareness, communication, and explanation of the importance of the hidromorphological recovery as the basis to recover all the fluvial system dynamics at the Ter basin. This has been done through the Osona’s Naturalistic Days.

Around 10 people accompanied the LIFE ALNUS delegation (CTFC and CERM) and the works management responsible (ENGHYDRA) across the implementation zones. There, we went through the techniques and actions which will allow the reconnection of the island and the old secondary flow arm to the Ter river.

The project “Hidromorphological rehabilitation of the Gambires island and the Espadamala de Baix property (Torelló), including the Sorral island (Masies de Voltregà) at the Ter river” consist on the works in a stretch of almost 4 km through morphology and connectivity recovery actions. This will boost the communitarian interest habitat 91E0* (Alder forest of Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior conservation at regional and EU scale, according to the LIFE ALNUS project objectives.
