  • During the Christmas holidays, we had the chance to visit the geological reserve with our guide, Philippe Rocher, who had the patience to explain to our diverse group at the level of knowledge, the vast world of fossils. Be it inside in the Museum, and outside on the walls, this tour is amazing, I highly recommend it!

  • A great afternoon of discovery and activities for the children around the fossils, with a guide fan and happy to pass on his knowledge to young and old alike. To discover!

  • Playful discovery of fossils at the Museum and in the forest, my son loved. The guide makes us share his passion. Super afternoon.

  • Cool.
  • To do know this natural reserve which is protected. On 14 October 2017 from 15: 00 to 17: 00 visit guided free nature reserve of Boston. It is written on 7 October on the site "the science party" which is apparently a mistake.

  • 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.
