The Nature centre is Vannes’ environmental education facility. Its aim is to make as many people as possible aware of how to protect the environment and nature. Discovering the world around us is based on observation and experimentation. Budding naturalists learn how to work outdoors in teams, how to organize, how to make hypotheses and meet professionals and scientists. The Nature centre also welcomes and provides information to the public. Special documentation on the themes of the air, waste disposal, nature, energy and sustainable development is also freely available… Teachers, children and students will find information there that will help them to prepare presentations and reports or organize events and outings.
