The council of the community of Marches du Velay-Rochebaron had approved, last January, the production of a booklet of notable species “with the aim of making people discover and understand the richness of the biodiversity of the ponds of Bas -in-Basset. “
From the Natterjack toad to the tawny dragonfly and the European beaver
The richly illustrated guide is now available. Il a été édité en collaboration avec les acteurs locaux de l’environnement à savoir the LPO (Ligue de protection des oiseaux) Haute-Loire, le CPIE du Velay (Center permanent d’initiation l’environnement) mais aussi les associations et fédération de peach.
The species that mark the particularity of the place and the species of plants and trees are widely mentioned. We can mention the emblematic night heron and the amazing European beaver, but also the common alder, the tawny dragonfly, the spotted salamander, the calamite toad or the bouvière and the common coot. “Each sheet offers you reading and comprehension elements about the habitat, diet and mode of reproduction of each of the families. This tool will be an excellent companion in the field for all nature lovers, ”says Xavier Delpy, president of the Community of communes of Marches du Velay-Rochebaron.
Also an educational notebook
Remember that an educational brochure was also produced. It is intended for local schools but also for leisure activities (and can be obtained from the inter-municipal tourist office). “In addition, and to deepen their knowledge and discover in more detail all the riches of the site, outings to nature are organized at the request of structures supervised by a specialized professional guide,” said the community of municipalities.
The guide is available free of charge in digital version at www.marchesduvelayrochebaron.fr and in paper format at the offices of the Inter-municipal Tourist Office at a price of 2 euros.
