The Marais poitevin celebrates its label Regional Nature Park !

Nature Julien - Animateur web By Julien - Animateur web, the 12 June 2014

Marais poitevin Regional Nature Park ! The long-awaited label is back ! Yes yes, is back. Because having been certified first time in 1979, the Marais poitevin was downgraded in 1997. Let us pass on the reasons which led to this downgrading and let us return to the new label.

17 years will have been necessary so that the Marais poitevin becomes again a Regional Nature Park. This long wait rewards the work of regions Poitou-Charentes and Pays de la Loire, departments of Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres and Vendée, municipalities, team of the Park and its partners. This return among the family of the PNR is the opportunity to party !

The inhabitants of the territory (and the others also) are invited to come to celebrate the Regional Nature Park label in Coulon on Sunday, June 15th, from 11 am till 5 pm. An exceptional party because Madam Ségolène Royal, Minister for Ecology, of the Sustainable development and the Energy will be present at 12 am to award the label. Do not hesitate to make the trip, the entry is free !

The party will be all the more beautiful because it comes "to be transplanted" in Maraisthon, marathon Green of the Marais poitevin which celebrates it 5th year ! Maraisthon, it is thus a marathon, a running of 10 km and a bare hike of 11km. It is moreover still possible to join the marathon and the hike.

For the rest of the festivities : producers' market of the Marais with space picnics, exhibitions, projections on big screen, trail round (boat, pony, carriage), animals of the Marais, fishes workshop, games for children (merry-go-round Green, kart with pedals, trampoline, wooden games, workshops), shows ambulatories (brass band Les Traîne savates, Funny birds - Cie Patenfer). A very beautiful program !

Who says Regional Nature Park label, says potential increase of the tourist attendance of the Marais poitevin. Our Office will thus be present on a stand all day long to inform you and advise to you at best to take advantage completely of this Mecca of the green tourism.

Then on Sunday, do not stay at home. The more we shall be many, the more the party will be beautiful to the label !
