    I did the route N ° 2 with my kids (ages 8 and 4). They loved. The first part with the search in the laboratory and the second part on the field Museum. Even parents I learned a lot of things. It's worth to do it and the "RANGERS" I jest reserve guides are super nice.

    Attracted by the collection of fossils we had the surprise of a ballad commented out in the Woods to get to each site.

    A family visit, activity for children who become paleontologists apprentice. Very well conducted in the Museum, and the output out on two super informative sites. The tropics in Bordeaux, to go to understand :)

    Place to walk and relax. Beautiful well maintained County forest. It is large (8ha I think). It lacks only a few benches in order to arise to admire nature.
