The environmental education team of Valle Cavanata Nature Reserve, operating since 1988 at Miramare Marine Protected Area, plans and carries out activities for any kind of school, giving the opportunity to study the environments and the fauna of the Reserve. The staff of biologists and naturalists dealing with environmental education uses "hands-on" methods linked to the philosophy of the equivalent American and English centers, which are in the forefront as far as the experimentation of environmental education techniques is concerned, constantly involving students in an active manner in environmental discovery and interpretation. Together with the environmental research classic methods of analysis (survey of environmental parameters, flora and fauna sampling, elaboration of studies along transepts, etc.), also techniques based on a sensory approach are used to successfully involve students in educational activities.
Environmental education activities are different according to the different needs of students and teachers, and include half-day or full-day activities, as well as stays, the so-called "Blue Weeks", lasting three, four, or five days.
