An educational area has been set up at the entrance to one of the observatory, 150 m² of exhibition space on birds of prey, their lifestyles, their breeding activities, etc. Thanks to the species panel presenting raptor species, the game is to find and identify the species present in the aviary, a moment of patience and observation to be done with family or friends.
Warning : The path of the aviary «Terre des Aigles» is a bit rocky, so it is pretty much harsh with wheelchairs. Indeed, we try to make a place as natural as possible for the birds. However, you can easily go through the two others biotopics aviaries «La Lagune» and «Le Clos des 4 tours».
Le Clos des 4 tours
