Bosco Villoresi Oasis

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

Bosco Villoresi oasis is about 2.5-acre wide, with a constantly growing forest.
This area also includes the orchard, the instructional pond, the perfume hill, the educational apiary, and a pool of water 359-square yard wide.

Visitors can follow two nature trails with a true wealth of information panels, showcasing and introducing the peculiarities of each single plant species. There is also a huge and well-organized collection of wood specimens, vital when researching the very structures of each tree.

In the ponds, visitors can observe life and reproduction cycles of several amphibians like frogs, toads, newts, water striders, diving beetles, and gastropods.

Around the bodies of water, there is a flora rich in sedges (Carex spp.), common reed (Phragmites australis), cattail (Typha spp.), willows (Salix spp.), and dogwood (Cornus sanguinea), which offer refuge and nourishment to several birds, reptiles, and insects.

Migratory birds such as the goldfinch, or nocturnal birds of prey such as the owl or the barn owl, find refuge in these woods. Among the birds, there are many we tits, robins, woodpeckers, and blackbirds.
Vole hares and hedgehogs are among the most abundant mammals.

A part of the oasis is intended for bees and here, visitors can observe the hives and the life of those industrious insects, as well as the wondrous blooming of snowflakes (Leucojum vernum), myrtle (Vincaspp.), primulas (Primula spp.), violets (Viola spp.), buttercups (Ranunculus spp.), and Solomon’s seals (Polygonatum multiflorum).

Several fragrances await the visitors, like sage (Salvia spp.), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), lavender (Lavandula spp.), thyme (Thymus spp.), oregano (Origanum spp.), mint (Mentha spp.), honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.), and roses (Rosa spp.).
