City of Wetlands

Origin of Maullin

The Festival “Origin of the Maullín River” was conceived as a means of empowering the community towards protecting the Maullín River and the urban wetlands of the city of Llanquihue. Over one hundred people from the surrounding community took an active part in the cleaning of the river source and Las Ranas

Wetland, one of the five historic wetlands in the city of Llanquihue that still remains. More than 3 tons of waste was extracted from the river and the wetland, mainly household waste, including parts of refrigerators, televisions, window frames, children’s cars, car batteries, mattresses and truck tires.
