Le plan de la Garde is a restored nature area of 130 hectare with many trails to explore it. A very interesting birding area during migration.
Le plan de la Garde aims to protect and enhance a vast flood expansion zone, a wetland for the flora and fauna it shelters. It is a veritable green lung, made of renatured streams, green pools and preserved natural spaces, located in the heart of the communes of La Garde and Pradet. In the 130-hectare park 800 trees were planted and 55 000 aquatic plants. More and more birds are attracted to the renatured area. The basins with thick reed beds, mudflats and open water areas are very interesting for migrants. Many migratory birds already visit the site during their migratory stop. Among the birds you can see here are Woodchat Shrike, Little Owl, Purple Heron, Common Kingfisher, Sparrowhawk, Reed Warbler, Great Reed Warbler and Cetti's Warbler.
There are several parks. Click on the P in the map to get directions. There are also many tracks for pedestrians and cyclists to explore the area. The route you see on the map is 2,5 km.
