    At the heart of the Lattes area, the biological richness of these riverbanks gives rise to the diversity of the environments: reed beds, salt marshes, reclaimed land and new woodland. Once upon a time, canals and irrigation channels led to cultivation, and since 1985 the banks have been designated protected sites under the auspices of the Conservatoire du Littoral (coastal protection agency). Ever since then, water levels have been maintained to attract flora and fauna, as well as the pursuit of traditional activities and visits from the public. The Maison de la Nature (nature discovery centre) is well worth a visit and there are marked trails and specially-themed children’s activities.
