What is S.T.I.N.A. (Territorial System of Naturalistic and Environmental Interest)?

S.T.I.N.A. is a territorial system including protected areas, areas of particular naturalistic, wildlife, and landscape interest, connected with a local, provincial, and regional planning.
Therefore, STINA is not only a park of naturalistic interest or a mere urban development instrument, but it also aims at being a reference framework to join and enhance the widespread naturalistic and cultural resources according sustainable development principles.
S.T.I.N.A. also represents a first step towards the creation of a "territorial label" to identify and promote all the local production and service activities, transforming sustainable development from a mere slogan into a real and efficient process of economic and social growth of the territory.

The protected area has a plan and regulations.
Moreover, a forest management plan for the state areas has been recently developed: it works as a sector plan in the agricultural and forest field.
A further management plan that is under study regards the pSCI "Selva di Meana", mainly coinciding with the territory of the homonymous protected area.
Among the most important floristic and vegetational features, there are the cotton lavender, the narcissus, several orchids (almost 40 species) and the woods dominated by sessile oak and hornbeam, while among the wildlife species there are the European pond turtle and the wild cat.
