The Association

The Acquerino Cantagallo Association was founded by a group of friends who are passionate about their local area. Each one of us, with our own motivation and energy, offers skills covering many subjects: sport, nature photography, beekeeping, mycology, history about the land, trail maintenance and much more.

Over the years, a diverse network of people has grown but we have maintained the aims of promoting and rediscovering our beloved mountainous lands. We initially created our Facebook page to collect photos taken during our trips in the woods, and slowly it has evolved into an educational page for promoting the area.

We decided to meet in person at our meetings called “Off the Web.” Due to the tremendous success, it opened our eyes to all the unexpected possibilities, including the full social and environmental value of our activities.

It was time to make an important step towards something more than just being a group of enthusiasts. So, on 16th April 2016, we officially created the volunteer association for the promotion of the reserve. We have always carried out our activities with passion and commitment, driven by a shared feeling: the love for our land.
