Trudner Horn / Monte Corno Nature Park
Visible and invisible time
Having been founded in 1980 and expanded two decades later, the Trudner Horn / Monte Corno Nature Park now covers a surface area of 6,851 hectares that are part of the towns of Altrei /Anterivo, Montan / Montagna, Neumarkt / Egna, Salurn / Salorno and Truden / Trodena. The park is located in the south of Bozen / Bolzano, on the orographically left side of the Etsch / Adige river. It is delimited by the end of Fleimstal / Val die Fiemme valley in the north, Cembra valley in the southeast and Etsch / Adige valley from Neumarkt / Egna to the defile of Salurn / Salorno in the west. The species diversity of both fauna and flora in the park is unique compared with other South Tyrolean nature parks by virtue of the fact that the park’s sub-Mediterranean climatic zone is far milder than the harsher climate that prevails in the northeast.
The park is part of the European-wide Natura 2000 sites (external link), which aim to promote habitat, flora and fauna conservation and were established under the EU’s FFH Directive (92/43/EC) and Bird’s Directive (2009/147/EC). Article 6(1) of the FFH Directive requires EU member states to elaborate conservation measures for Natura 2000 sites, to which end the province of South Tyrol commissioned so called management plans (external link).
Each park has an executive board whose members are representatives of the relevant municipalities, an expert in natural sciences, representatives of nature conservation associations, farmers' rapresentatives and representatives of the relevant provincial agencies.
