The Mirambel Forest
Of man and nature
This lake was dug to supply water to fight forest fires. But nature has gradually regained its rights over this artificial environment: rushes, sedges, bulrushes; at the back, a floating area of soil has formed, the bog is gaining ground.
With a bit of luck, you might be able to spot the grey heron that has taken up residence here.

The Mirambel Sonata
This xylophone was made by the children from the Sainte-Fortunade special school in Corrèze. They have created this construction to try and demonstrate to us the variability of the sounds produced by the different species of trees according to their appearance, hardness and durability.
Enjoy and be lulled by this delightful auditory experience.
Marking: follow the Badger signs.
