Environmental Programme ‘To Value The Landscape Of Mazarrón’
This educational project is aimed at students of Infant, Primary, Secondary, Bachelor and FP of Mazarrón to show them the wealth of environmental landscape in the area. In Mazarrón we are fortunate to have very different landscapes from beach areas, cliffs, areas of mines, irrigation, dry land, etc; so it is hoped that the schoolchildren will enjoy the beauty and understand that it is something they have to take care of.
The project will have 45 routes that will cover from the beaches to the mountains through to archaeological sites. They will embrace beaches such as La Isla or El Mojón and mountains such as Las Herrerías. The initiative involves FACSA, ESAMUR, the Mazarrón Ecopark and the 112 Emergency Coordination Centre.
Mazarrón Sports Schools
Activities include Mountain Bike, Rhythmic Gymnastics and Beach Volley and are aimed at children and young people between 3 and 18 years and are priced at 75€ for the whole year (except for the two related to water sports taught by Bahía Surf Club and Escuela Grímpola, which cost 100€ and 150€ respectively). The table tennis school is completely free. There are discounts for members of large families and for those who can certify a 33% disability.
