" Promenez-vous entre le Vieux Rhin et le Grand Canal d’Alsace et découvrez ce qui était le plus grand chantier de renaturation d’Europe. "
Stroll between the Old Rhine and the Grand Canal d'Alsace and discover what was the largest renaturation site in Europe.
Today, the Rhine Island is a mosaic of terrestrial and aquatic areas, highly diversified and conducive to the development of biodiversity.
On the 100 hectares formerly dedicated to the cultivation of corn, a major ecological renaturation has been carried out involving the restoration of a branch of river over more than seven kilometres, thus giving birth to a new river in Alsace, and the reconstitution of a set of natural environments, wet and dry, which allow the maintenance or the return of certain species of amphibians, birds and mammals.
