environment around them.

establishments n. 5 and 6 in Lignano Pineta and in other 7 locations in Lignano
Sabbiadoro there will be free recreational activities in order to strengthen the
observation skill of children, to enrich their knowledge of the sea ecosystem, to
awaken them to the protection of the natural environment and to make little
daily gestures to preserve it.
During these activities, which are important and intelligent reflections upon the
sea, different themes will be treated, trying to incite a right behaviour.

discover sea characteristics; furthermore like real detectives they should also
know of recognizing finds and signs.
