The main objectives of this project are to raise social awareness in people regarding their local environment and carry out practices that will contribute to the restoration of the quarry fronts and natural connectivity. The activities would be held nearby the Rezola Cement Factory in the municipality of Arrigorriaga (Bizkaia).
