Les Alisiers: LPO refuge!
We are an LPO Refuge!
We organize our site to be favorable to biodiversity and nature, by creating conditions conducive to the establishment of wild flora and fauna and by reducing our impact on the environment:
> Protect birds and nature by ensuring the tranquility of the place, in particular during sensitive periods such as during nesting and extreme cold.
> Diversify and develop the surface of our Refuge with wild fauna and flora, with a rural hedge and a watering trough.
> Favor the planting of species that grow naturally in my region, more resistant to climatic conditions and adapted to the local fauna (shrubs, perennial flowers and honey)
> No chemicals
> Adopt an ecological mode of management of my Refuge by preferring manual weeding techniques and organic products if an intervention is really necessary.
> Prefer natural fertilizers (compost, nettle manure, etc.) for demanding plants such as fruit trees or vegetables, by promoting plant associations and disease-reducing auxiliaries.
> Adopt eco-citizen actions, in particular by making reasonable use of natural resources such as water and by recycling my household waste.
Our Refuge is a place without hunting for biodiversity.
To share with you this living nature, we have at your disposal material and documentation. You can observe, discover, hike near our home, in the forest above or in the mountains!

A pair of binoculars and a bird guide
To go further in knowledge:
> www.paca.lpo.fr descriptive sheets of the most common species in our region, ornitho guides for adults and children.

To go on an adventure:
> 40 hiking routes to explore the department, with a detailed description of the species to be observed depending on the season (short walk to difficult hiking)
