Making a difference since 1994.

Novas Descobertas Association has been providing transformative, nature-based learning experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds since 1994. Throughout our 30-year history, our programs and activities have promoted personal development, created links with the community and encouraged active citizenship.

The association, formerly known as Project New Discoveries, continues with the same commitment to offering quality educational programs.
