Site description Essa área corresponde ao grande maciço de Mata Atlântica existente ao sul da cidade de Blumenau, onde recentemente foi criado o Parque Nacional da Serra do Itajaí. A região apresenta relevo montanhoso, revestido com florestas montanas e submontanas úmidas ainda bem preservadas. O Parque das Nascentes, antes denominado Parque Ecológico Artex, foi englobado pela nova unidade de conservação federal.

Key Biodiversity Existem listas de aves para áreas protegidas do setor nordeste do maciço (e.g. , Parque das Nascentes e Parque Ecológico Spitzkopf), que juntas somam cerca de 220 espécies. Entretanto, o número de espécies presentes na região deve ser maior, considerando as dimensões do maciço florestal. Ainda podem ocorrer na área espécies ameaçadas que contam apenas com registros históricos para Blumenau, como Pipile jacutinga (jacutinga), Claravis godefrida (pararu-espelho), Triclaria malachitacea (sabiá-cica) e Biatas nigropectus (papo-branco).
