Biocaching in the Network of Schist Villages

Keywords: environmental education, new information and communication technologies, biocaching, native forest, invasive plants, Schist Villages


The application of new information, communication and localization technologies to environmental education, native forest and invasive plants, in the context of rural landscapes integrated in national and international tourism products, configures the framework for this reflection, which intends, on the one hand, to present a brief synthesis of the theoretical and conceptual framework through a literature review and, on the other, to explain the methodology and analyze the first results after the implementation (in the second half of 2018) of the project “Biocaching Portugal” in the four landscape units of the Schist Villages Network (Serra da Lousã; Serra da Açor; Zêzere; Tejo/Ocreza). This, in turn, has the purpose of using the remarkable grove and invasive plants as anchor to induce the discovery and enjoyment of the landscape, and also as a pillar for actions of sensibilization and environmental education in the territory.
