Monts d'Ardèche natural regional Park

Organisation of the Park

Natural regional Park functions

Established 40 years ago, the Parks aim is to protect the natural and cultural heritage of high-quality but fragile natural areas that can be threatened by devitalisation or by excessive urban or tourist pressure.

Their purpose is to strike a balance both with social and economic development, in accordance with the conservation of environment.

Born from a local desire (the municipalities sign a 12 year Charter), 48 natural regional Parks are designated by the Ministry of the Environment. They cover 15% of the country and 3,5 millions of inhabitants live there.

Natural regional Park purposes:

  • Protecting and enhancing the natural and cultural heritage, following an appropriate management of the natural environments and landscapes.
  • Planning the land use, setting the directions for the rural development projects.
  • Managing and coordinating the economic and social development and actions, to offer a good quality of life in the region. The Park supports the companies committed in the conservation of environment, enhancing the natural and human resources;
  • Welcoming, educating and informing the visitors. It connects the people with nature, in order for them to understand, enjoy and contribute to the environmental issues.
  • Experimenting. The Park contributes to research projects and aims to innovative process and active methods.
