Let's travel the paths of Lauragais and elsewhere, take great breaths of oxygen and communion with nature. All this heritage that surrounds us is an inestimable wealth, whose value is matched only by its fragility. To preserve our natural spaces and minimize the impact of our steps, here are some simple rules to follow.

1/ I respect the markup

  • For my own safety.
  • To avoid encroaching on private roads.
  • To avoid disturbing the surrounding fauna.
  • To follow well-maintained paths adapted to my walk.
  • So as not to get lost!

2/ I remain discreet

  • So as not to disturb the animals.
  • So as not to disturb other hikers.
  • To enjoy the symphony that nature offers us.

3/ I respect the places

  • I don't make fire.
  • I don't touch animals.
  • I let the flowers grow.
  • I do not use motorized vehicles on the trails.

4/ I am interested in the nature that surrounds me

With the mobile app Pl @ ntnet I identify the plants on my way and I contribute to their inventory, while learning to know the natural heritage that surrounds me.

The application allows toidentify thousands of plant species by photographing them. The images sent are automatically compared to the thousands of images in the botanical database. A list of plants is then proposed to me. The last word is up to me!

My new photos feed the botanical database of the application. I become a citizen actor of the inventory project.

5/ I don't leave my waste lying around

As a reminder :

  • A fruit skin: pollution from 3 months to 2 years.
  • A handkerchief: pollution for 3 months.
  • A cigarette butt: pollution for 1 to 5 years.
  • A can or a plastic bottle: pollution for 100 to 500 years.

6/ I keep my pet on a leash

  • For the welfare of wild animals who may perceive it as a predator.
  • Out of respect for other hikers who may be afraid of him.
  • For his own safety.

7/ I help to preserve the sites

The application Suric @ te helps organizations, associations and federations that have the valuable mission of maintaining and preserving hiking trails.

 I don't know if my life has any meaning. But my walk has a purpose. Put one foot in front of the other. And start again until joy ensues.
