An educational land area in Sanilhac-Sagriès
The Sanilhac-Sagriès school is involved in one of the ten experimental educational land-based areas in France, initiated by the French Biodiversity Agency. Its innovative and participative approach places the students of the 4th and 5th grades as real managers of a natural area, in the Regional Nature Reserve of the Gorges du Gardon. Field trips, inventories and meetings with local users allow students to create a strong link with their territory. All decisions taken in the "Children's Council" thus feed into a management plan for the area that will lead to concrete conservation actions.
