THE QUEST FOR ALEYA'S FLOWER - TREASURE HUNT

“Aleya needs your help to find a hidden flower, a miracle flower whose location is known to almost no one. To complete this life-size quest that will take you to every corner of the Bamboo Grove, you will be looking for beacons, equipped with a large game booklet containing a map full of secret indications. You will be confronted with intrigues involving insects, birds, trees and animals that can be found in the park. The smallest detail will be important in solving the riddles that will be submitted to you.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 It’s a family trail game, which calls on the sense of observation and deduction skills! In addition to the fun aspect, the game aims to raise public awareness of the need to respect and protect nature: other species contribute to the balance of ecosystems. Man should no longer eradicate pests, but rather favour their natural predators.

EXHIBITION "ENVOL" ("FLIGHT")

This 2023 season welcomes a new exhibition “Envol” 🐦

▶ By Marie H. Ray and Philippe Boisson

For two years, these two Cévennes-based photographers with a passion for nature and wildlife have invested the Bambouseraie and travelled the Cévennes National Park to prepare this exhibition. Their objective – to reveal what we often hear, what we rarely see or see so furtively in our parks, gardens and wilderness. This avian wealth, between plains, deep valleys, mountains and causses is here revealed through 30 representative photos of waders, anatidae, passerines and raptors.

📸 Come and admire it at the bamboo meadow!

« Art and nature exhibition »

Each year, the artists featured in our Art & Nature exhibition, express the poetic influence of bamboo and its multiple facets through their creations in their natural environment. For this new edition, the park has opened its doors to Amandine Lasa and Les Fujak.

At the foot of the oak tree, Amandine Lasa’s work entitled “Structure-Fine” made of bamboo sections is just a few steps away from that of Les Fujak (Margrit Neuendorf and Olivier Huet) who with “Le jeu des perles de verres” adorn bamboo stems with bracelets.

In this photo you can see the work of the Fujaks: “The glass bead game”.

You can find these two installations in your Bamboo Garden throughout the 2022 season.

THE MAS CÉVENOL
In the heart of the Cevennes, this old U-shaped building on 4 levels is at the crossroads of the main axes of the estate. We do not know exactly how to date it but we lend it a very old past: towards the end of the fifteenth century.

NEW 2022
THE PLAY AREA: a new playground, in harmony with nature!

This season’s new feature will particularly delight all mini-adventurers.
The Bambouseraie has inaugurated a new play area, allowing families to enjoy a playful moment in complete peace of mind.
This new space is perfectly in line with the park’s environmental approach thanks to its natural installations, designed in Robinia wood, a material renowned for its durability over time, and its wood chip covered playground.
Playing is essential for the development and fulfilment of toddlers. Here, from the age of 2, they are invited to climb, swing and interact through the various activities on offer, encouraging them to stimulate both their physical and relational skills.

Ages 2 to 8 years:

The course for the youngest children consists of a suspension bridge, climbing nets followed by a slide
and a «sand house», contributing to the development of the child’s motor skills, balance and thinking skills. The many creative play areas will keep them entertained for hours!

– Ages 6 to 12 years:

The agility course is a challenge that children of this age will want to take on. Its climbing nets, beams, ropes and jumps, make it possible to have great fun while developing and strengthening the whole body. This course also stimulates socio-emotional skills, which are essential for establishing relationships in society.

Much more than a simple play area, the Bambouseraie playground offers families a stimulating experience in a natural setting.

Project co-financed by:
– Occitania Region for €152,815
– LEADER for an amount of €63,177.64
– The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, Europe invests in rural areas

A poetic ode to life where nature alone expresses itself.

BALADE SPECTACLE « LE JARDIN AUX OISEAUX »

A wondering during which the public will have to feeling of entering into communion with nature, of being immersed in it, in its deepest secrets. In the group, the words become murmurs, the silence is made little by little and imposes itself. With hushed steps, the walkers begin their migration, their senses awake, in search of sounds.

Oh ! Surprise, the bird singers trill, whistle, chirp… and the birds answer them. Wanblers appear, they approach. A robin’s alarm call, a jay’s cry of fear, a chaffindis song of love… a scene of life is set up and reminds us that, with winged beings, the same issues are at stake as with humans. Nature is welcoming of cruel; the landscape is the setting for a story that artists translate into music. A poetry of the moment, a unique journey with distant or familiar sounds.

Access to the concert is included in the price of the entrance ticket.

Reservations required, subject to availability.

Registration by phone 04 66 61 96 17 or by mail at bambou@bambouseraie.fr

LECTUTE BY Francis Hallé " COMPARISON BETWEEN TROPICAL AND TEMPERATE FORESTS

It is often believed that rainforests stand out for the size of their trees, which are supposed to be much larger than the trees of temperate forests; this view is false because the world’s largest trees live in temperate regions.

The real difference is only recently known (1982) with the first studies measuring biodiversity: tropical forests have about a hundred times more biodiversity than temperate forests.

Another essential difference lies in the absence of thermal seasons at the lowest latitudes: as a result, not all trees of the same species bloom at the same time. It also happens that, in the absence of a seasonal synchronizer, the branches of the same tree do not bloom at the same time.

Conference time: 3:30 pm

Signing of several books at the end of the conference.

No prior registration included in the ticket price
