In September we are invited to discover the “regional natural parks” of the Basse-Normandie Region. The nearest one to here is the Park of the Marais – based around Carentan and stretching out to St. Saveur-le-Vicomte, north to St. Mere Eglise, and south to Perrier and Lessay. The salt marshes of this low-lying area of land are home to many species of birds and animals.
From the centre at Les Ponts d’Ouve
you can explore the Marais in many different ways, including by boat
either by yourself, or as part of a guided tour.
More information is available on the site
as also about the ongoing exhibition of building, using natural materials in the region
Well worth a visit, if not in this month of parks, than at any other time, to discover more of this region’s fascinating ecology and history.
