Campo Ramón: a small town with ecological tradition

For the municipality of Campo Ramón, in Misiones, having an ecological mindset is the number one priority. It is part of the tradition of its inhabitants.


Campo Ramón is a small town near the city of Oberá, Misiones province. It is located in an area surrounded by natural resources, streams and waterfalls. The population does not exceed 15,000 inhabitants, however, the ecological awareness of its inhabitants is well established. At present it is considered as the First EcologicalMunicipality. For this reason, since 1994, the Feast of Ecology has been held there every year.

The beginning of a tradition

Campo Ramón has its origins in the 1930s, on the banks of the stream, now called Arroyo Ramón. The creek was always of vital importance to the city. From its protection, a tradition was formed with ecological awareness. Campo Ramón is the only municipality in Argentina that has signed an agreement for their care. On the other hand, those who collaborate with your care have benefits. Settlers who care for the basin have discounts on electricity and municipal taxes.

Campo Ramón is also marked in its name the importance of the environment. It's just that this place was literally born out of fire. In the beginning, a clandestine yerba mate dryer operated, owned by a man named Ramón. When he was discovered by the authorities, Ramón decided to disappear the evidence of the crime by setting fire to the dryer. The fire spread and cleared an extensive field that was known as “Los Campos de Ramón”.

A party ecological

Every year between the end of January and the beginning of February the Provincial Ecology Festivalis organized. This show seeks to generate ecological awareness, preserving and caring for the environment. The activities carried out are related to agrocamping, bird watching and butterfly watching. There is also an agroecological fair and kayak tours along the El Bonito stream. Oh, you know! If you go to Campo Ramón, the first thing is ecology.
