World Wetlands Day

Arles - Environnement / Développement durable - Saturday 19 February 2022 between 10 am and 4 pm. - Free

In the company of the site's curator, visitors will have the opportunity to observe grey herons building their nests in the wood that hosts their colony. Along the canals you will certainly come across signs of the beaver.

If the sun is shining and the temperatures are mild, the first turtles will probably have already come out of hibernation.

This outing will also allow the uninitiated to familiarise themselves with the birds of the marshes.

You will be expected to bring your own lunch, but you should bring clothing suitable for the weather conditions.

Reservation by phone 04 90 98 70 91 or by e-mail visites.mdv@espaces-naturels.fr
