Located in the green belt of the Triunfo Petrochemical Complex, in Rio Grande do Sul, the Environmental Station has been monitoring the local fauna and flora since the 1980s. Since then, more than 3,000 species of animals and plants have been cataloged for science. In 1994, the station also housed a center for activities focusing on environmental education and awareness of the Plant Cycle and the Plastic Cycle. The activities also include an environmental education program that addresses issues such as citizenship, waste, water, and biodiversity.

Established in 1987, it provides for the recovery of degraded forest and soil and now houses a space for studies, visits and development of social and environmental projects. The site was awarded the title of Outpost of the Atlantic Forest Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
