A LITTLE HISTORY
In 1995, the pupils in science
in year 2 won the first prize « UAB Nature », thanks to a bats
This first prize, for which
they received a 3 750€ cheque, allowed us to move from the conception
to the realization of this project.
• Providing winter shelter
by closing in 2 sites to allow bats hibernation.
• Building and installing
• The installation of an old
orchard site behind the school in order to get food for the bats
In Autumn 1996, a quickset
hedge was then planted all around the orchard.
In spring 1998, a
pond was installed and in 2003 a weather
station was added.
The installation of this orchard
has allowed, time after time, the development of a natural biotope ,by
increasing biodiversity. Moreover ,this area extends the natural site of
Beaumont (classified as Natura 2000) and therefore takes part in the ecological
plan of the area.
