ANGEL ENGUIX, the new director of the Sierra Helada national park, recently visited Alfaz town hall on the Costa Blanca. He outlined park policies while mayors office councillor Maite Garcia and environment councillor Luis Morant described the events that the municipality is organising to celebrate the Sierra Helada’s 15 years as a national park. Also present was the municipal archaeologist Carolina Frias, responsible for Alfaz’s heritage, who explained not only the town hall’s operations inside the park but also plans for improving the maritime zone and protecting its underwater meadows of Posidonia Oceanica. All involved hope to increase the number of people who visit the Sierra Helada while improving conservation and ensuring that the park remains as Alfaz and Albir residents have always known it. Enguix also visited the former Carabineros (coastguards) post where the park’s offices are located. Also an Interpretation Centre or informal museum, its exhibition room will be opening shortly together with a function room with capacity for 100 people.
