About : Ethnobotanical Path of the Lumberjack of Auris

An itinerary adapted to children and adults, to walk around and discover the local natural and cultural heritage, in the company of Jacques the Woodcutter!

The forest of Piégut offers both a remarkable natural heritage (classified as a Natura 2000 zone) and a first-rate cultural testimony (historical role with the Aurienchons).
Through a series of fun and educational information sheets, available at the start of the trail, Jacques shares the memories of his childhood before the resort was built, and offers walkers a discovery of the flora, thanks to information on certain plant species in the forest, as well as a discovery of the local heritage: information on the traditional and contemporary uses of the forest's natural resources, an insight into what life was like in Auris before the resort was built.
Along the way, you will learn a few words of patois, learn how to identify trees, or even how to make skis out of a local tree!

Designed by Caroline "Calendula" from an ethnobotanical survey carried out in Auris, this trail is part of the dynamics of environmental education, enhancement of local memory and development of the territory.
