age group
3-14 years old children can visit the school. Adults are also welcomed.
Environment and sustainable developement
The School is designed to promote the opening up of children, teenagers and adults to the living world that surrounds them, in all its diversity. Educational activities and novel entertainment, alternating discovering, experimentation and realisation, are mainly carried out in the Park de Branféré. From the earliest age, these promote an awareness of the links of interdependence between living beings.
Description and Evaluation

To deal with biodiversity by going from a local approach to an overall view, the educational approach is part of a succession of several interlocking areas:
1. The School's HQE building: the place of daily life and whose equipment is consistent with protecting the environment.
2. The School's planned surrounds: the first place of contact with and immersion in nature.
3. The Park de Branféré: a botanical and animal park and learning ground to understand the world's complex nature, its fragility or its sometimes artificial aspect.
4. The region, exceptionally rich in natural areas of great ecological interest: the Morbihan gulf (listed Ramsar convention on wetlands site), the Vilaine valley (Natura 2000 site), the Grande Brière marshland (regional nature park), the lower valley of the Oust (a listed major natural site), a land of discovery, adventure and understanding the regional issues.
5. Biodiversity on a worldwide scale, dealt with by specific educational aids and thanks to ICTs to be open to world issues.
In this spirit, various activities are proposed to the children in a school context and in the context of educational leisure pursuits. Activities are also provided for adults. The School of Biodiversity is adapted to welcome disabled members of the public.
The full programme is available on the website.
It's definitely an interesting action.
