Grup de Natura Freixe

We are a charitable organization with more than 30 years’ history dedicated to the conservation of nature, focusing on the natural spaces of the River Ebro.

We encourage conservation, research, education and sensitization of the natural and cultural heritage, using land stewardship as a management tool. We work with an inclusive vision, where the challenge is to involve owners, managers, experts and land users to develop long-term sustainable management. We promote the network of environmental volunteers and we particularly encourage the inclusion of groups of young people at risk of social exclusion in conservation strategies.

Currently, we manage more than 700 hª of spaces under land stewardship and we are managers of the Sebes and Flix Meander Wildlife Nature Reserve, where we act to recover and improve habitats of interest (wet zones, forest spaces, and open spaces) to encourage biodiversity.
