Nanao Ecocenter

  • Nanao Ecocenter

南澳生態教育館和林務局羅東林區管理處南澳工作站位在同一棟建築物內。民國86年時,南澳工作站搬遷至此,將原有的樟樹造林地整理規劃為原生植物標本園,並在辦公室主建築物側邊設置南澳生態教育館(林業館及生態館),針對臺灣的森林資源利用以及生態保育等主題發揮解說教育之功能。

  • Founding Goal

    We are devoted to environmental preservation, sustainable use of resources, and prosperity shared by all ethnic groups.

  • Characteristics

    The Nanou Ecocenter is situated in an important spot of the Dananao region. The center’s total area is nine hectares, including the Nanao Working Station, Forestry Center and Ecological Center, and a native tree park.
     
    The ecocenter is close to three important protected areas, including the Wushibi Coastal nature reserve, Nan-ao Broad-leaved Forest nature reserve, and Guanyin Coast Major Wildlife Habitat. As well as guided-tour and promotional work, we also focus on the statuses and immediate threats to surrounding preservation areas. Not only is the ecocenter an educational platform of local nature and culture, visitors can learn more about the preservation, diversity of organisms, operation of forest ecosystems, eco-tourism and community forestry. We aspire to effectively bring into play the functions and services of this ecocenter.

  • Area intro

    The Nanao Ecocenter and Nanao Working Station of the Luodong District Office, Forestry Bureau are in the same building. In 1997, the working station relocated here, and the original camphor afforestation was modified into a native plant garden. The Nanao Ecocenter (including a forestry center and an ecological center) was also built next to the main office building in the same year. The center holds themed exhibitions on the uses of forest resources and ecological conservation in Taiwan, among others.
     
    Other than indoor exhibitions, the native plant garden is worth going to. The plants are divided into a few categories according to a plant classification system. Currently, there are 47 species and 120 genuses, mostly woody plants, followed by vine and herbal plants. It is a great place for holding outdoor educational events for middle and elementary school children, not only from Yilan County but also the whole of northern Taiwan.
