EVREST Science Club: Field trip to Barril beach

EVREST Science Club on Task 6.3. Dissemination to the general public

Field trip to Barril beach

In June the students involved in the EVREST Science Club participated in a field trip to the Barril beach (Tavira island) to observe and identify the different habitats (salt marsh and dune system, forest), sediment (mud and sand) and fauna (e.g. Afruca tangeri, Erodius sp.) and flora (e.g. Spartina marĂ­tima, Elymus farctus). With this activity, students were able to consolidate the knowledge acquired during the classroom hands-on activities. Overall, they were very interested in the distinct subjects covered and they could answer all the core topic questions.
