Observando el bosque de las yucas
Un sitio histórico y un paisaje bucólico. Hacia el horizonte, al fondo del Área Silvestre se entrevé “El Palmarcito” o “Bosque de Yucas”, una plantación establecida hace más de 50 años como parte de un proyecto piloto gubernamental para el aprovechamiento de especies vegetales de zonas áridas. Años más tarde, el Jardín Botánico Regional de Cadereyta fue fundado en estos terrenos y El Palmarcito pasó a ser parte de él. Hoy día este tapiz, al mismo tiempo que ofrece anidamiento a numerosas especies de aves y desás vida silvestre, también nos da oportunidad para diversas actividades del Jardín Botánico, tales como dinámicas para la educación ambiental, exposiciones, conciertos, sesiones de reflexión etc. Espera la puesta de sol y camina hacia el bosque y podrás saciar tus oídos con el canto de las aves que regresan a sus nidos. Todo esto convierte al Palmar en un lugar majestuoso y digno a la observación y el acercamiento con la naturaleza. Tú eres parte de ella.

Gracias por caminar con nosotros este sendero silvestre.

2. Observing the Yucca Forest Marker
The marker is near the last viewing station on the "Water Trail" (Sendero del Agua) at the Cadereyta Regional Botanical Garden. The yucca forest is in the background in this view.
"El Palmarcito" or the "Yucca Forest", a plantation established more than 50 years ago as part of a government pilot project for the exploitation of plant species in arid zones. Years later, the Regional Botanical Garden of Cadereyta was founded in these lands and El Palmarcito was incorporated into it. Today this tapestry, while offering nesting sites to numerous species of birds and wildlife, also gives us the opportunity for Botanical Garden activities, such as spaces for environmental education, exhibitions, concerts, reflection sessions, etc. Wait for the sunset and walk towards the forest and you will be able to satisfy your ear with the song of the birds returning to their nests. All this makes El Palmarcito a majestic and dignified place for observation and learning about nature. You are part of it.

Thank you for walking with us on this natural trail.
