School field trip with First graders from Naples Elementary School (Gricignano d'Aversa)
May 2019 • Family
This is the second year that we take our first graders in the Bosco of San Silvestro to visit the bee farm and learn about bees and honey making.
We were provided with English speaking guides who took us on a very fun tour of the beautiful woods of the Oasis. The kids learned about the life of the beehive through fun simulation games, made little pendants made out of bees' wax, saw the bee keeper tending the bees and working on the beehive, met bunnies, ducks, turtles and butterflies, hugged trees, smelt plants and bushes and had time to play and eat in the beautiful picnic area. At the end we watched a video about Panda cubs and the Oasis itself. Mr Paolella, the director of the Oasis, and the guides did an excellent job in making us feel at home. We will go again next year!

A walk in the wild!

Just outside the town, the bosco of S. Silvestro is a natural oasis through which you can go from the Gardens of the Royal Palace to the old colony of S. Leucio. a quite, interesting walk far from the noises of the city!

Not only an oasis of natural beauty, but also a document of how civicness can be effective against criminal groups
Sep 2016 • Business
I visited this site as part of a business excursion. The visit included: a walk through the woods, up to a point that allows a wide view below on the Royal Gardens in Caserta; a lunch organized by the management by advance booking; an illustration of the original and current function of the site.
Being close both to the Royal Palace (XVIIIth century) and to the governmental silk factory in San Leucio (XIXth century), this valley, rich in game, is appointed by the Neapolitan kings of the Bourbon dynasty (1734-1861), as a privileged place for hunting; and for this purpose a "Casina di caccia" (hunting lodge) was built here, which now houses the local branch of the World Wildlife Fund, which manages the site.
I must say that if I liked the walk into the Lodge and around the woods, as well as the the pleasant and well kept environment, I was particularly struck by the final manager's briefing. During it, he showed us many slides comparing the current structure of the site with that - regrettable - in the era prior to the WWF allocation (1993). And above all, the manager mentioned the stiff resistance that the staff was forced to face, against some local criminal groups, interested that the area continued to be no man's land for their activities (illegal dumping, poaching, prostitution). Those outlaws have in the past repeatedly performed sabotage acts, such as vandalism, barbaric killing of protected animals, etc.
