From now till the end of October, at lots of venues across the region, there are walks, talks, slide shows and more, in a packed programme devoted to nature.

If you love flowers, perhaps the Sortie botanique at Conat will take your fancy on Sunday 26th June. Or you might prefer the Nature et sens outing in Nyer on Thursday 28th July, which will explore nature through our senses. If mushrooms, bats, birds of prey, sea creatures or even the planets are more your thing, those are covered too!

Brought to you by Réserves Naturelles Catalanes, it’s all taking place in our natural parks:

Cerdagne – Eyne

Conflent – Conat, Nohèdes, Py and Manet, Jujols, Nyer

Vallespir – Prats-de-Mollo-la-Preste

At the coast – Mas Larrieu, Cerbère – Banyuls

Many of the walks are easy, some will be more testing, but there’s something for everyone. If you’re disabled it doesn’t mean you can’t participate. The organisers work hard to make sure no one misses out.

Enjoy your summer getting closer to nature!
