Who we are
The Priolo´s Environmental Center is an educational and visitors center managed by the Portuguese Society for the Study of Bird (SPEA) in partnership with the Regional Secretariat of Environment and the Sea (SRAM) and the Regional Directorate for Forestall Resources (DRRF), in the following of the LIFE-Priolo Project LIFE-Priolo.
It's main mission is to contribute for the general undestanding of the Priolo and its habitat, Azorean Laurel Forest, and to their conservation. Priolo is the second most threatened bird in Europe, being only present in the eastern part of São Miguel Island in the Azores.


Objectives:
1. Reception and information center for all visitors to the SPA ZPE Pico da Vara/Ribeira do Guilherme.
2. Create an activity program, aimed to the local population, that can contribute to improve their knowledge and awareness about native species in the Açores.
3. Offer an interesting educational program for schools all over the Azores.
4. Encourage sustaintable development in the region by selling local handcraft and alimentar products, and by developing Eco-tourism.
5. Develop a group of partners and volunteers, that can contribute to the conservation of the Priolo and its habitat.
6. Develop a structure to encourage research on the SPA Pico da Vara/Ribeira do Guilherme.


We have many activities for our visitors all year round. Visitors will have access to an interactive exhibition that will help to have a better understanding of the flora, fauna and conservation actions present in the SPA Pico da Vara /Ribeira do Guilherme. We also have a specially designed children area in which they can do activities related to Priolo and Azorean Laurel Forest.
