  • Marck town council is now the proud owner of a typical 19th century farm, set amid five hectares of wooded parkland. It now has the task of converting it into a centre for nature and the environment, which will be known as the “Ferme des Aigrettes”. The aim is to conserve our natural heritage and promote eco-friendly practices (renewable energy, eco-design, etc.). Visitors will be able to discover the flora and fauna and, at the same time, learn about other environmental issues (air, water and soil cycles and quality, waste management, mobility, sustainable development etc.). The town council has chosen to adopt a sustainable approach for the project by respecting the site’s architectural coherence and authenticity, employing only eco-friendly materials, using water judiciously and making a commitment to use renewable energy sources whenever possible. The Ferme des Aigrettes will be at the heart of a large-scale educational project across the Calais region. It is situated on the green and blue environmental corridor and is the starting point for a wide range of nature discovery activities for both groups and individuals. Families can still come here to relax, have fun and meet the farm animals. The Ferme des Aigrettes is also an ecologically rich site: its wood is home to the region’s biggest colony of grey herons and little egrets, which come here to nest in spring. In an initiative to preserve the nesting sites and the many animal and plant species of special interest, a management plan for the site’s wooded areas and meadowland has been drawn up in partnership with the Conservatoire des espaces naturels du Nord/Pas-de-Calais (Nord/Pas de Calais environmental protection agency).
