Exploring Péronne for people with the nature bug
Picardy Canoe would like to invite you to explore the Upper Somme and Péronne with a focus on nature. You will walk part of the way, and cross the "Étang de Robécourt" pond by canoe.
Nature outing :
We'll have our heads in the clouds as we will talk about the weather here in Picardy, green land of inspiration and aspiration, and about the ubiquitous water that made Péronne into an impregnable town, "Urbs Nescia Vinci".
We will wander as the water takes us, hearing the lapping of the waves on the hull, smelling the perfumes of unexpected flowers, and listening to tasty anecdotes.
When we open up this window on the "Étang de Robécourt" pond, we will hear and see the local endemic fauna, and imagine how, over 10000 years ago, nature fashioned the landscape, and how humanity has put its stamp on it.
We will also bring to light, some themes, such as the “Hardines” gardens, the Somme channeled, the “Batellerie” (inland waterway shipping), which in those bygone days formed the fabric of society.
We'll disembark on the so-symbolic “Boulevard des Anglais”, and wrap up this pleasant tour by tasting a Picard beer, just pulled out of the basket.
